Former Optics Lab Projects
The photonics lab conducts multiple projects centered around the idea of "in-fiber devices". The project goals are to make viable sensors out of D-fiber platforms and also make detecting them easier.
||In this project we etch out part of the core of a D-fiber. We then replace it with a polymer. We are currently researching the useful optical properties of the polymer core. Documentation for this group.
||The FSIM is a Fiber Bragg Grating interrogator. Its goal is to be small, low power, and fast. The first version of the board is complete, and the second version promises speeds up to 4 orders of magnitude faster.
