Abstract

We report the development and characterisation of highly miniaturised fibre-optic sensors for simultaneous pressure and temperature measurement, and a compact interrogation system with a high sampling rate. The sensors, which have a maximum diameter of 250 µm, are based on multiple low-finesse optical cavities formed from polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), positioned at the distal ends of optical fibres, and interrogated using phase-resolved low-coherence interferometry. At acquisition rates of 250 Hz, temperature and pressure changes of 0.0021 °C and 0.22 mmHg are detectable. An in vivo experiment demonstrated that the sensors had sufficient speed and sensitivity for monitoring dynamic physiological pressure waveforms. These sensors are ideally suited to various applications in minimally invasive surgery, where diminutive lateral dimensions, high sensitivity and low manufacturing complexities are particularly valuable.
