FBGs are small and they respond very fast. As such, FBG sensors are significant contributors to minimizing the size of robotic surgery arms and probes while also increasing the “intelligence” of the robot by providing haptic feedback limited only by the computing capabilities of the robot controller and the processing speed of the optical instrument monitoring the FBGs. Our family of FAZT ultimate performance instruments measure subtle pressure changes, temperature variations, and strains with ultimate precision and repeatability at scan rates to 8kHz.
Endoscopic and other specialized medical fields are also introducing FBG based probes and smart devices to reduce the size and, hence, the level of intrusion when performing tests and procedures on patients. This is a fast growing field and much opportunity awaits.
For life and death situations that are all too real, we offer the matching ultimate precision, repeatability and reliability instrument!
