Paper Abstract

The characteristics of an optical fiber sensor for the entero-gastric reflux are described. Two different probes are developed for "in vivo" measurements making use of PCS fibers (200 um core diameter) and of a fiber bundle respectively. The performance of the sensor and of the two probes are discussed and experimental "in vivo" results are reported.
