NM09–A fiber optic probe for thermal therapy

Hernández-Arenas A., Pimentel-Domínguez R., Vélez-Cordero J. R., Hernández-Cordero J.

We demonstrate a novel fiber optic device for controlled generation of photothermal effects. The fiber probe is pumped by a laser diode and incorporates polymer composites allowing to generate highly localized heat and obtain temperature measurements simultaneously. We analyze the temperature field in the vicinity of the device through computer simulations and these are validated […]
