IPAS Mini Imaging+Sensing Probe Research reported in Optics Letters
Inspiring transdisciplinary photonics researchers, led by Dr Jiawen Li, have invented a world-first tiny fibre-optic probe that can simultaneously measure temperature and see deep inside the body. Combining optical imaging and sensing technologies into a single-fibre-based probe will 1) enable researchers to accurately position sensors under real-time co-localized image guidance and 2) achieve simultaneous imaging and sensing in vivo, which are not accessible using present approaches. Within a week, this paper has reached Altmetric score 89 and ranked No.1 out of all outputs of similar age from Optics Letters.
