ORC Seminar Series

"Soft glass microstructured fibres for new transmission wavelengths, sensing, nonlinear optics & lasers"


Speaker: Tanya Monro

Date: Thursday 26 July 2007
Venue: Lecture Theatre B, Building 46, University of Southampton
Time: 2pm

Abstract

This presentation will review recent progress in the design, fabrication and application of soft glass microstructured optical fibres at the University of Adelaide, Australia. Work in four key areas will be described: fibres for new transmission wavelengths, nonlinear fibres for non-telecoms devices, chemical and biological sensing, and work towards soft glass microstructured fibre lasers.
