Easy to Swallow for the Patient: Fiber Sensors from IPHT Jena (Kopie 1)
Not only are modern fibers important components in telecommunication, they also find increased use in medical technologies, especially minimal invasive applications. At the Institute of Photonic Technology (IPHT) in Jena, Germany, researchers developed methods for the production of particularly thin optical fibers with efficient light guiding properties. The idea is to use such fibers inside an endoscope in the screening of esophageal cancer.
Researchers at IPHT Take a Look Into the History of Space – Using “Spiderweb Sensors”
Crucial information about the origins of the universe and the creation of stars and planets are being gathered at an altitude of 5,000 meters in Chile’s Atacama Desert. Among the group of scientists are experts from the Institute of Photonic Technology (IPHT).
