Optical Fiber Sensors & Integrated Photonics Subsystems

The “Optical Fiber Sensors and Integrated Photonic Subsystems” group at the TeCIP Institute of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna is one of the world’s leading research teams in the area of optical fiber sensor systems. The group is directed by Fabrizio Di Pasquale, was established in 2002, and it is currently composed of 10 people, including 3 faculty members, 4 research associates and 3 PhD students.

The group is involved in industrial and public research projects related to several aspects of optical fiber sensor systems and integrated photonic subsystems for optical interconnection and sensing.

Current research activities include:

  • Raman based distributed optical fiber temperature sensors
  • Brillouin based distributed sensors
  • Distributed acoustic sensing
  • Fiber Bragg Grating based sensors systems
  • Hybrid fiber optic sensor systems
  • Silicon photonic based integrated reconfigurable optical switches
  • Magneto-optic and nonreciprocal devices for silicon photonics
  • Optical networks on chip
  • Optical fiber sensor reading units on chip
