Sensing with Light: Physical, Chemical, and Biological Sensing Applications

Ertan Salik

Physics, Cal Poly Pomona

Sensors are ubiquitous in our lives. Practically every technological innovation comes with multiple sensors, whether it is the car you drive everyday or the cell phone you constantly use. We will present different sensing mechanisms involving light emphasizing optical fiber sensors, specifically tapered fiber sensors we have developed recently. Optical fiber sensors can have multiple uses, such as: temperature, stress sensing (physical), chemical concentration, or sensing the amount of toxins, viruses, or bacteria (biological). Applications in various industries are possible: Fundamental science research, oil wells, environmental protection, building integrity, food safety, defense against biological and chemical weapons, and healthcare.

Refreshments at 4:00 PM. Seminar begins at 4:10 PM.
Building 8, Room 241
