Course: Specialty Optical Fibres for sensing applications in Industry

Curious to know how fiber optics can be used as sensors in industry? In this one day course, we demonstrate how fiber optic sensors are used in industry, and how custom optical fibers makes a difference.

Fiber optic sensors are used in demanding environments and in a variety of industries. In many cases, it is beneficial to design custom optical fibers for the application, so-called specialty fibers.

The aim of today's course is to practically demonstrate how fiber sensors and specialty optical fibers work, and provide a better understanding of how they can enable new products and industrial applications.

Course content

We will describe how to change the properties of an optical fiber and demonstrate the benefits of using custom fibers for sensors, through several real-world examples and demonstrations of how to use different coating materials, glass composition and modified fiber structures to enable optical fibers that are more resistant to demanding environments, has improved sensor properties, or enables measurement of new quantities.

Participants will also benefit from a brief introduction to metrology given by the National Metrology Institute of Sweden, introducing technical quality, certifications and accreditation procedures for a product.

Sign up for the course

The training takes place within the framework of the EU project PhotonHub. The course is held in English, on site at the RISE laboratories in Kista/Stockholm. The course can accommodate a limited number of participants.

Registration is done via the form at the bottom of this page.
