The NSERC- and CIHR-funded project on probes for deep brain neurosurgery is moving along nicely, with the first iteration of the novel fibre design completed and on its way to the lab for testing. The fibres and optical components for this project are the product of a collaboration between the Canada Excellence Research Chair Prof. Younès Messaddeq, Prof. Tigran Galstian,  and Prof. Daniel Côté at the Université Laval COPL group.
