IOP Publishing has launched three high-impact open access journals. The scope of these journals will focus on research covering three aspects of the physical world that will shape the future of our planet: energy, materials and light. The titles will be led by editors-in-chief at the forefront of their respective fields. "JPhys Photonics is an innovative new open access journal for high quality research in all areas where physical sciences are applied in the field of photonics. The journal will showcase the most significant and exciting developments in photonics and photonics-enabled research."
Optical fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensors have been the subject of extensive and relentless research efforts over the past 40 years. This technology is now applied in diverse fields such as in bio and medical, and in structural health monitoring of civil and aeronautic engineering structures, FBG sensing based research and innovation is one of B-PHOT's cornerstone activities.
After a most inspiring PhD research and defense of her PhD thesis ‘Advances in freeform optical design methods for imaging applications’, Yunfeng has graduated as Doctor in Engineering. Including freeform components in optical systems provides numerous potentials for enhanced performance as well as compact and lightweight packaging with opportunities for mass production at low cost.
STEM project Quantum SpinOff introduces modern physics to 6th years students in Science Mathematics. Students from Sint Jozef Aarschot visited VUB B-PHOT research group to learn how photonics can be applied in innovative projects. Our researchers will support them throughout the full track until their own project is finalised.
