My research is focused on the area of photonics. My specific areas of interest are:
Below are some ongoing research projects:
Smart Sensors for Engineering Structures (SSES), MATERA-ERAnet Project. This project is in collaboration with Warsaw University of Technology and a Polish helicopter manufacturer, Aero-AT Ltd. The research is focused on the development of smart composite structures for the aviation industry based on a hybrid sensing approach in a composite in order to provide simultaneous in-situ distributed measurement of strain, temperature and vibration.
Fibre Bragg Grating-Based Sensors in Polymer Optical Fibres for Biomedical Applications, India-Ireland Cooperative Science Programme 2011.This project aims to develop new biomedical sensors based on polymer optical fibres. The fabrication of FBGs in plastic optical fibre is a key part of this project and opens up the possibility of developing new sensors systems for biomedical applications, for example sensors for artificial limbs and sensors embedded in clothing which can continually monitor stress to improve posture for those suffering from orthopaedic injuries.
Micro/Nanofibre Optical Sensors for Biomedical Applications, DIT Fiosraigh Research Excellence Programme. This project will exploit the application of optical micro-/nano fibres for measuring the change of parameters in the surrounding environment or binding phenomena on the surface of the fibre for biomedical applications.
