Bioresorbable Fiber Bragg Gratings

Stavros Pissadakis' group at FORTH (Greece) inscribed Fiber Bragg Gratings on bioresorbable optical fibers fabricated by PhotoNext and Istituto Superiore Mario Boella - ISMB researchers.

- PhotoNext team involved MAPS (Materials for Photonics and Sensing): Davide Janner, Daniel Milanese, Diego Pugliese, Edoardo Ceci Ginistrelli (now at VeriVin).

- ISMB researcher: Nadia G. Boetti.

Results are published on Optics letters.
