Title (EN) TEMPERATURE CONTROL MECHANISMS FOR STABLE SHAPE SENSING
(FR) MÉCANISMES DE RÉGULATION DE TEMPÉRATURE POUR UNE DÉTECTION DE FORME STABLE
Abstract:
(EN) A fiber optic shape sensing system includes an elongated fiber optic shape sensing device (116) having a proximal region and a distal region. The distal region includes a first temperature at which shape sensing is performed. A temperature control device (102, 104, 106) is configured to control a second temperature at the proximal region of the shape sensing device to match the first temperature. The proximal region includes a launch region (118) for launching light into at least one optical fiber of the fiber optical shape sensing device.
(FR) Système de détection de forme de fibre optique comprenant un dispositif (116) de détection de forme fibre optique de forme allongée ayant une région proximale et une région distale. La région distale inclut une première température à laquelle la détection de forme est effectuée. Un dispositif de régulation de température (102, 104, 106) est conçu pour commander une seconde température au niveau de la région proximale du dispositif de détection de forme pour correspondre à la première température. La région proximale comprend une zone de lancement (118) pour injecter de la lumière dans au moins une fibre optique du dispositif de détection de forme de la fibre optique.
