Abstract
This work presents a fibre optic-based flexible catheter for high resolution manometry, with sensing pods located at a pitch of 10 mm and an overall diameter of 2.8 mm. In-fiber Bragg gratings act as the sensing elements within these sensing pods. Absent in each sensing pod are rigid anchor points representing a novel departure from comparable designs and resulting in increased sensitivity and decoupling from axial loading. A pressure sensitivity of 1.8 pm/mmHg and axial sensitivity of 11 mmHg/N of applied load is demonstrated. Crosstalk between individual sensors is characterized and a compensation scheme is developed and validated.
