Abstract
This presentation explores the possibility of an using extrusion process in order to manufacture a new type of optical fiber based biomedical sensors. With the extrusion method, any number of fibers can be integrated in the sensor to fulfill different requirements. The extrusion process is known for its reliability and enables the manufacture of any length of sensor without reproducibility issues. The emphasis is placed on shape sensing of needles and catheters for minimally invasive surgery. Shape sensing is performed using the enhanced backscatter signal of our ROGUEs (random optical fiber gratings written by UV or ultrafast laser exposure).
