FBGS releases its latest presentation, titled: “Draw-Tower Gratings in Multicore Fiber: A Paradigm Shift in Curvature Sensing” in the April 2017 issue of Medical Design Briefs. The article covers a comprehensive review of FBGS’s core technology of draw-tower grating (DTG®) process and advantages, in addition to the capability to transition the fabrication from single to multicore fibers (MCF). Test results reflecting signal interrogation and correlation with known sensor profiles are presented to support a strong potential for applications in the minimally-invasive medical device arena and general industrial usages.
