The advantage of fiber optic temperature sensors and probes compared to conventional ones such as thermistors or thermocouples lies in the nonconductive property of the glass or plastic fibers used. This avoids shock hazard to the patients, and perturbation of the readings in electromagnetic environments and hence is ideal for medical application.
