Medical Instruments

Fiber-top and ferrule-top cantilevers (i.e., cantilevers fabricated on the tip of an optical fiber or on the tip of a ferruled optical fiber) offer unprecedented opportunities for the development of indenter for medical applications, possibly coupled with optical spectroscopy and optical imaging technques. Our group is pioneering this field with a research activity that spans from the design and realization of instrument prototypes to the evaluation of their performance in the clinics.
