“Made from a clear rubbery substance known as PDMS (poly-dimethylsiloxane), the interconnections feature a transparent core through which the light travels, that’s surrounded by an outer layer of the same material. Because light doesn’t move as easily through that outer layer due to its lower refractive index, the design keeps the light signals contained within the core.”
