Programmable liquid optical interfaces

Nature Photonics spoke to Carl Brown from Nottingham Trent University about the creation of a voltage-programmable liquid-oil surface that can rapidly switch and deflect light beams.

Carl Brown and his colleagues have a Letter on reconfigurable liquid surfaces on page 403 of this issue.
