The repository is organized in Communities and Collections: the first correspond to organic entities of INESC TEC and the latter comprise the outputs of each community organized by types of documents – articles in internacional journals, articles in internacional conferences, PhD Theses, among other documentation.
Browsing Documental Repository by Subject "fiber optic sensors"
A reflective fiber optic sensor based on a Fabry-Perot cavity made by splicing two sections of multimode fiber is
demonstrated to measure the needle curvature. The sensing structure was incorporated into a medical needle and characterized for curvature and temperature measurements. The maximum sensitivity of -0.152dB/m-1 was obtained to the curvature measurements, with a resolution of 0.089m-1. When subjected to temperature, the sensing head presented a low temperature sensitivity, which resulted in a small cross-sensitivity.
