Silver Halide Fiber Allows a Real Time Monitoring of the High-Resolution Thermal Image During the Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

Thermal injury is the most important mechanism of lesion formation during radiofrequency catheter ablation procedures. Irreversible tissue injury requires heating to approximately 50 °C. Temperatures above 100 °C result in coagulum formation. As temperature plays a major role during radiofrequency catheter ablation procedures, temperature monitoring has been recommended as a tool to help catheter ablation […]

Mid-Infrared Spectroscopy for Monitoring of Anaerobic Digestion Processes - Prospects and Challenges

To develop an online probe that is not only sufficiently robust, but also able to measure crucial process variables in biogas plants is a tough challenge. Therefore, a mid-infrared (MIR) spectroscopic attenuated total reflection (ATR) probe and robust probe fitting were established. A fully automated probe control, calibration after probe cleaning, and analysis of the […]
