Saturday 4th of November from 15.00-16.00 Rasmus Schmidt Davidsen was interviewed in Radio 24-7. Rasmus talked about the photovoltaic eye implant, he is currently working on. The implant is made from thin silicon and consists of thousands of microscopic solar cells; each representing a "pixel" in the artificial vision, which the chip is intended to produce, when in contact with nerve cells inside the eyes of blind patients.

The research is funded by VELUX Fonden.
