Opaque to nearly the entire spectrum of light, the living human body is a tough nut to crack for imaging techniques. Lasers can circumvent this problem by delivering a strong, focused beam of light exactly where it is needed, and radial emitters, which produce laser light in a homogenous ring across the circumference of the fiber, are particularly popular for medical applications. Sterile, medical-grade fibers are commonly used for endovenous laser applications, such as the treatment of varicose veins, but must be supplied from European and Chinese sources and can only be used for a single operation. Ortaç Research Group has long been conducting research for the domestic fabrication of light-emitting fibers for medical applications, and their studies have now culminated in the production of a new generation of fibers optimized for this purpose. The group has high hopes of their performance: “Now, the optical design, production and characterization of these fibers have been totally acco
Every year, the METU Parlar Foundation recognizes the achievements of scientists and scholars from a variety of fields for their exceptional research productivity, in honor of the late METU professor, Mustafa Parlar. This year, Asst. Prof. Bülend Ortaç is among the recipients of METU Prof. Dr. Mustafa Parlar Foundation Research Incentive Awards.
