Symposium: Fiber Bragg Gratings - From Laboratory to the Real World

Bragg Gratings, Photosensitivity and Poling in Glass Waveguides (BGPP)

Symposium: Fiber Bragg Gratings - From Laboratory to the Real World

As  a part of the 2016 BGPP Topical Meeting,  papers are sought that describe efforts to transition the fiber Bragg grating, FBG, technology from a low technology readiness level to industrial application.  Specifically, papers are being solicited that cover processes of moving the FBG technology from laboratories of academia through small R&D efforts to much broader industrial applications.    
 
The topics of solicited papers include but are not limited to:
 
  • Performance of FBG systems in real environments;
  • Miniaturization efforts to make entire FBG systems suitable for on-board, in-flight, and other applications with space and weight limitations;
  • Integration and packaging of the FBGs;
  • Effects of harsh environments (temperature, pressure, etc.) on the performance of FBG systems;
  • Signal processing of data from fiber Bragg gratings and system integration of FBGs with signal processing units;
  • Standardization efforts for different industries and applications;
  • Specialized applications of FBGs in communication, oil and gas industry, aerospace missions, and other areas.
