Highly sensitive, microscopic optical fibre sensors with pioneering biomedical monitoring capability

The research team led by Professor Hwa-yaw Tam, Chair Professor of Photonics and Head of the Department of Electrical Engineering at PolyU, developed the novel fibre optic microsensors that are biocompatible, supple and extremely sensitive to very small pressure changes inside the human body.  His team also made a critical breakthrough by basing their novel fibre optic sensors on an advanced plastic material, ZEONEX, that solves the problems of glass and traditional plastic.
