    Ultrafast-laser ablation of polymer multicore fibers enhances biomedical sensing

    The next step is to integrate the multipoint-emission fiber, with optimization, in devices to perform a range of biomedical applications such as fluorescence, 2 confocal imaging, 3 photobiomodulation, 4 optical tomography, 5 medical device location, 6 and 3D optical coherence tomography (OCT). 7 The discrete emission of light has potential in medical diagnostics, enabling spectroscopic investigation at many points along a medical device throughout an organ or extended tissue structures. During medical-device placement—for instance, central venous catheter placement—multipoint light emission along the device length could be viewed through the skin. An immediate application of such a fiber is ...
