Design of Low-Loss Plastic Optical Fiber based on Fluorinated Polymer

This project will be with Vena Medical that focused on creating a forward viewing imaging microcatheter to provide a real-time navigational perspective for interventional physicians. The Vena Microcatheter will make interventional procedures faster, easier, and safer for both patients and physicians. This project will investigate the novel polymer optical fiber with high flexibility and high-quality image transmittance for medical microcatheter. This project will provide tremendous advantage to Vena Medical providing new opportunities to extract the maximum value from our low valued Canadian microcatheter products.
