Litracon™ Light Transmitting Concrete

August 16, 2007

Litracon™ presents the phenomenon of light transmitting concrete in the form of a widely applicable new building material.
Thousands of optical glass fibres form a matrix and run parallel to each other between the two main surfaces of each block. Due to the small size of the fibres, they blend into concrete becoming a component of the material like small pieces of aggregate. Because of their parallel position, the light-information on the brighter side of such a wall appears unchanged on the darker side. The most interesting form of this phenomenon is probably the sharp display of shadows on the opposing side of the wall. Moreover, the colour of the light also remains the same.
You don’t need x-ray vision to see through this wall… I love it… imagine the possibilities.
