Independence from Epilepsy
This spot opens on a classic small-town 4th of July parade. We see a patient sitting in his living room alone, separated from the celebration taking place outside his window. Dr. Jonathan Edwards reminds us that while everyone talks about independence, the word has a different meaning for the thousands of people suffering from epilepsy. He tells us about a surgical procedure available at MUSC that is making independence a reality again for patients with epilepsy.

3.4 Optical switches

Optical space switching has been possible for a long time, but has been slow to find widespread application.

Solid-state optical switching (i.e. switching with no moving parts) can use devices based upon electro-optic materials such as lithium niobate (LiNbO3). An electro-optic material is one whose refractive index changes significantly when an electric field is applied across it.
