Harsh Environment sensors

Optical fiber sensors

Modeling of FBG under radiation

Our lab focuses on designing conventional, radiation-hardened, and specialty fibers for developing special sensors that can be used for applications ranging from medicine and health monitoring to temperature and structural monitoring in extreme environments. Currently, the group has funding in collaboration with the Idaho National lab .In our research we study how radiation can affect optical fibers when exposed to radiation and how different sensors perform under radiation


Optical fiber Coating

We investigate novel coatings of optical fibers such as silver and nickel that can survive harsh environment.
