On August 27, 2015, Sanne Sulejmani successfully defended her PhD thesis entitled "Microstructured optical fiber Bragg grating-based sensors for shear strain measurements" in a public session. In her PhD research work she successfully demonstrated shear strain detection in various materials and structures based on fiber Bragg grating sensors fabricated in specialty microstructured optical fibers (‘MOFBG sensor’).
B-PHOT's research on the Butterfly micro-structured optical fiber sensor is featured in the July 2015 edition of Laser Focus World.
On the 1st July 2015, Andrea Ceglia successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis entitled "Unravelling technology and distribution of ancient glass by means of X-ray and UV-vis-NIR spectroscopy" in a public session.
In celebration of the international year of light IYL2015 EU Director Khalil Rouhana, Rector Paul De Knop, B-PHOT Director Hugo Thienpont, Director Henri Simons and Chairman Freddy Thielemans of the Atomium officially opened the exhibition “ID#2015: Discover the power of light!” on 11 June 2015. The inauguration was part of the PhotonicSplash event, organised in the framework of the European GoPhoton project, and happened in the presence of several GoPhoton partners from Barcelona, Berlin, Paris and Bratislava, as well as 160 VIPs.
