IEEE Foothill Section, IEEE Foothill Section Photonics and Electron Devices Chapter, and the California Polytechnic University Pomona IEEE Students Branch invite you to a Technical Presentation
Topic: Fiber Optic Sensing Technology and Applications
Presenter: Dr Hao Zhao
Saturday, September 6, 2014
Cal Poly Pomona Campus, Bronco Student Center, Room TBA(URSA MINOR)
9:30 AM to 12:00 Noon
Abstract of this Presentation:
This presentation targets distributed Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) based Fiber Optic Sensing (FOS) technology and its application in electric power, mining, petrochemical, smart city and infrastructures. The technology involved with fiber optic sensors in these applications will be discussed, and the achieved performances will be presented. The speaker has many years’ experience on entrepreneurship in the China market. If you have an interest in fiber optics technology and/ or entrepreneurship in China, please plan to attend this upcoming event and present your questions.
