Constriction transducers reach the sensitivity of the joint-type

Last week Tibi made a few constriction transducers using the fiber splicer, which are as sensitive as the joint-type. Two of them were brought to Phil's lab, and one was tested with Phil's Mosquito. They are made from 125/62.5 MM glass fiber, they have 4 constriction zones, and the tip is coated with silver using our own coating method

We asked Hang to model the constriction transducer in order to optimize it.
