Project description

Optical fibres can be modified for use as sensors for a range of purposes. This includes modification for use in chemical and bio-sensing, along with measurement of properties such as temperature and pressure. We are currently working on developing new fibre optic sensor platforms for use in a range of sensing applications. There are two project areas available; the first will explore physical and chemical modification of optical fibres with thin-films for chemical sensing, the second will manufacture sensors and explores signal processing algorithms towards improving sensor resolution and sensitivity.

Note: You need to register interest in projects from different supervisors (not a number of projects with the one supervisor).
You must also contact each supervisor directly to discuss both the project details and your suitability to undertake the project.
