Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: INnovatIve graTings In plAstic opTical fibEr

Main Objective:
Modelling and improve the theoretical understanding of new geometries of POF.
Fabrication of the PFBG with different geometries.
Development of innovative devices for low-cost passive all-optical processing using PFBG namely: i) a POF fiber laser; ii) a fiber polarization controller; iii) an high tunable optical filter and wavelength division multiplexer (WDM).
Development of new techniques for splicing of POF using the self-written waveguides approach.
Design and development of new sensors based on PFBG. Two applications are envisaged: i) develop a smart textile with embedded PFBGs; ii) develop novel chemical optical fiber sensors for water quality assessment.
Experimental evaluation and assessment of the proposed solutions with the presentation of prototypes.
