The paper presents a new all-fiber probe for laser induced thermal ablation of solid tumor cells that integrates a beam delivery fiber with nanostructured surface to shape the laser irradiation pattern and a chirped grating to allow real-time monitoring of the temperature profile. A theoretical model of the sensor to study the temperature profile recovery algorithm and experimental validations using phantoms are discussed.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
