CREOL Room 103
Celebrating the International Year of Light 2015
The Fiber Sensors & Supercontinuum group at DTU Fotonik, the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), have two main activities in (I) supercontinuum theory, modelling, and experiments, both in silica and soft glass fibers for SC from 350nm to the mid-IR out to 13.3um, and in (II) microstructured polymer optical fibers (mPOFs), in particular for strain, humidity, and biosensing, where we have been fabricating our own fibers since 2004 on Denmark's only university-based draw tower and are about to spin-off the sensor company SHUTE. In this talk I would like to give you an overview of all our current and most recent activities. Surprising physics is still to be found in supercontinuum generation when you go to high average power!
Professor Ole Bang is Heading the Fiber Sensors & Supercontinuum Group at DTU Fotonik, Dept. of Photonics Engineering, the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), with about 16 people. He has worked in academic research since 1991 and supervised 31 PhD students. He has published 165 journal papers, 156 of which are in ISI with a total of 5104 ISI citations and an ISI h-index of 40 (seewww.researcherid.com/rid/E-6158-2010 and www.scholar.google.com/citations?user=XfNI3_YAAAAJ). He has published 1 book, 5 book chapters, 2 patents, and 200+ conference papers. He serves on the Program Committee at conferences, such as the Optical Fiber Sensor Conference (2011-14), ECOC, SPIE Defence, CLEO Europe/US, and Photonics Europe, and is a Topical Editor for Optics Letters and Journal of Optics. His group operates Denmark’s only university-based draw tower for drawing microstructured optical fibers (MOFs) and have considerable experience in polymer MOF technology, as well as in fiber based supercontinuum light source technology.
