Optical Fibre Temperature Sensors for Heavy Industry Applications
The Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing (IPAS) has been working with international partners to develop high temperature sensors using microstructured optical fibres.
These are fabricated using a femto-second laser ablation fibre Bragg grating, allowing them to survive to high temperatures up to 1300°C.
We are seeking a motivated and practical-orientated student to help us overcome challenges for applying our sensors in new and expanding applications. This includes implementing optical switching for parallel sensing and optical commutators for sensing rotating equipment.
You will learn valuable knowledge and skills in optical fibre theory, sensor fabrication, LabVIEW, and sensor testing,while engaging in an active industry-based project involving real-world installations in challenging environments.
Whether you're still at high school or planning to join us mid-year, taking a break from study or rethinking your career path, come chat with us at our STEM Careers Night.
You and your parents are invited to join us on campus on Tuesday 18 May to see what’s available in the world of STEM.
