B-PHOT members Prof. Heidi Ottevaere and Prof. Wendy Meulebroeck recently took part in a webinar on optical spectroscopy. Spectroscopy can be used in a variety of application fields, such as ancient glass research, and food safety.
Seven students of KA Oudenaarde came to visit B-PHOT, the Brussels Photonics Team. Prof. Heidi Ottevaere initiated the research field of photonics to those students as well as potential applications. The students visited the laser lab and the fiber sensing lab.
Recently a mini-SEM from Hirox was installed at B-PHOT's Photonic Innovation Center in Gooik. This new table top Scanning Electron Microscope is the first of its kind in Belgium. The SH-5000M, as the instrument is called, was installed in B-PHOT's cleanroom.
On November 5th, 2015, Ben De Pauw has successfully presented his PhD thesis entitled "Experimental analysis of flow-induced vibration in lead-bismuth cooled nuclear fuel assemblies" during a public session. He demonstrated the accurate characterization of vibrations in the lead-bismuth cooled fuel assembly intended for MYRRHA – the multi-purpose hybrid research reactor for high-tech applications – using optical fibre Bragg gratings as vibration sensors and applying state-of-the-art modal analysis techniques to the measurements.
