Proposed project involves development of novel optical system for fiber-optic based local monitoring, sensing and treatment. First, the material, to be inserted into the living mass (in-vivo experiment) will be biodegradable and biocompatible. This prevents the risk associated with traditional silica fiber. As the background, polymer blends and interpenetrating polymer networks will be used. Then, developed material will be used for construction of optical fiber and its connection with laser sources and detectors. Additionally, surface of optical fibers will be functionalized by susceptible layer for introducing the possibility for chemical analysis in-vivo. The safety and biocompatibility of developed system will be tested in a preclinical settings. Project combine specialists from different field of research and completely covered all stage of preparation of above mentioned system.

IPE carries out fundamental and applied research in the scientific fields of photonics, optoelectronics and electronics. In these fields, IPE generates new knowledge and develops new technologies.
