The Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) at the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom is one of the world’s largest and most successful institutes for photonics research. Many of the major developments in today’s global optical fibre infrastructure were pioneered by ORC researchers. The developments comprise the optical fibres and optical amplifiers, including the EDFA (Erbium doped fibre amplifier) that power the internet, the fibre gyroscope now used extensively in a range of modern aircraft to aid navigation, a range of optical fibre sensor technologies, and the fibre laser used for a variety of applications ranging from manufacturing, over medicine, to defence. In addition, many of these technologies were initially commercialised through spin-out companies from the ORC.
Dr Ping Hua will in this talk highlight some of the latest exciting developments in the field of optical fibre technology from the ORC, and how these can relate to the internet-of-things. Dr Ping Hua will also show examples of state-of-the-art optical fibres for next generation telecommunication systems, cutting edge optical fibre sensor designs, and new fibre laser configurations for applications in metrology, high performance sensing and machining. The talk will be relevant to students interested optical fibre technology, and for researchers interested in becoming involved with this exhilarating field.
Dr Ping Hua was born in Wuxi, China and graduated in Physics from Suzhou University, China. She obtained the PhD degree in Optoelectronics from the ORC, University of Southampton, UK. Ping came to the UK in 1989 and has been with the ORC since 1990 where she currently is working as a senior researcher. Her research interests include integrated optical waveguide-based sensors applied to biology, chemistry and environmental monitoring systems. Furthermore, she is involved with training and supervision of postgraduates and research staff in Cleanroom Technology.
