Karma Chameleon: Bragg Fiber Jacquard-Woven Photonic Textiles

Joanna Berzowska (Concordia University)

Karma Chameleon is a photonic textile display woven on a Jacquard loom, using photonic bandgap fibers that have the ability to change color when illuminated with ambient or transmitted white light. The use of double weave structures and complex Jacquard patterns allows us to further modulate the color and patterns on the textile.
