In addition, the new back-to-back bathrooms on the top floor are designed to channel light between the two spaces and into the master bedroom.
During the past 50 years, society members have archived documents, photos, and artifacts; published several books; and preserved historic structures, including Grand Island's Fur Trader's Cabin, the East Channel Light, and a number of other historic sites.
Biscayne Channel Light, built in 1929 and also known as Bug Light to local anglers, has served as a navigational marker and baitfish attract or to many South Florida boaters and fishermen.
Fiber optics, for those who have been studiously ignoring optical engineering, use the refractive index of the plastic tube in the sight, to channel light. The light that enters the tube cannot then pass through the side again; it is collected and escapes the tube only at the ends.
The research team has also created what it calls the first laser-written light-guiding systems that could pioneer these advancements and shot lasers into glass to create pathways that transmit data in the form of small beams of light, as the waveguides act as tunnels that channel light, similar to how electronic wires convey electrical signals.
These waveguides act as tunnels that channel light, analogous to the way electronic wires convey electrical signals, and form the basis for a host of applications.
Almost any image can be printed, but there are a few things to keep in mind: Colours will shift in the conversion from an RGB colour space (3 channel light based colour mixing) to a CMYK colour space (4 channel pigment based colour mixing) and again when printed using ceramic inks.
The house was formerly a burnt-out shop until two years ago when city leaders give the go-ahead for a refit to create the eco-home, which includes solar panels on the roof and sun pipes to channel light into the house.

The former uses reflectors to channel light through a tube from the roof, while the latter is a newer technology which harvests natural light and transports it through fibre optic cables into the home.
Rods have a higher refractive index than their surrounding tissue, making them ideal to channel light through total internal reflection.
