Quantum Diamond Conference – Bionic Eye

In December 2012 the Department of Quantum Physics at UKZN held the Quantum Diamond Conference in KwaZulu Natal.  At this conference Professor Steven Prawer FAA, who is a Director at The Melbourne Materials Institute presented a paper on the research and development of a Bionic Eye.  In the attached You Tube Clip Professor Prawer explains the development of this unique and amazing research and how it has progressed to the point where there is a case of one woman in Australia who, from being completely blind, is now able to see light.
