Sensor Development and Component Fabrication using Femtosecond Laser Material Processing Technologie
Topic: Sensor Development and Component Fabrication using Femtosecond Laser Material Processing Technologies
Speaker: Dr. Martin Jun, University of Victoria, Canada
Time: Dec 5, 10£º00 am
Inviter: Hu Jun
Femtosecond laser machining allows highly efficient ablation with minimized micro-cracks, heat affected zone, and shock waves in the materials. This makes femtosecond laser machining attractive in many applications. In this talk, use of femtosecond laser machining for fiber optic sensor development is presented. Direct fabrication of gratings within an optical fiber is possible, leading to development of innovative optical fiber based sensors. Fabrication of in-fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) and long period grating (LPGs) is accomplished. Using LPGs, sensing of carbon dioxide in a medium is presented. Fabrication capabilities for components with complicated geometries at the micro-scale (tubes, disks, notches, cones, etc) are also presented.
