Optical Fibre Sensing Solutions: From Macro- to Nanoscale

Prof. Yuliya Semenova

Photonics Research Centre, School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland

Venue: Har170

Date and Time: March 23rd, 12.30pm


Fibre-optic sensors can be reliable tools for a wide range of applications at a variety of physical scales: from the large scale and remote sensing in structural health monitoring of large civil structures to the micro- and nanosized probes reaching locations normally inaccessible by conventional measurement tools, such as inside the living human organism or even within a single living cell.

This presentation will introduce research activities of the Photonics Research Centre at Dublin Institute of Technology including

  • Fibre optic sensors and their application areas;

  • Sensing solutions from macro- to micro/nano:

  • Smart fibre structures;

  • Liquid crystal and microfluidic sensors;

  • Microresonators and microfibre devices.

  • Future directions and challenges

Brief Biography of the Speaker:

Yuliya Semenova is an ME graduate of Lviv Polytechnic National University, Ukraine of 1992. She received her PhD Degree in Physics of Liquid Crystals from the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences in 1999. Between 1997 and 2001 she worked as a researcher at the faculty of Electro-Physics at the Lviv Polytechnic National University. Since 2001 she has been with the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Dublin Institute of Technology. At present she is a Professor in the School and principal investigator in the Photonics Research Centre. Her research interests include fibre optic sensing, photonics and liquid crystals. She has authored over 270 peer reviewed journal and conference publications and six book chapters. To date the total research funding attributed to her efforts has amounted to over €1M. Professor Semenova is an Associate Editor of IET Electronics Letters. She is a Vice-Chair of the IEEE Photonics and Electron Devices Society Ireland and a member of the Optical Society of America.
