Description

The "Applied Photonics Bilbao", started his research activities on Polymer Optical Fibres and optical sensors in 1993. Since then, an ever growing research team coordinated by him has been carrying out an extensive research on the fabrication, characterization, applications and optimization of new types of POFs and related optical devices, such as POF-based optical amplifiers, lasers and sensors. The group is

At present, the group, led by thr Professor Joseba Zubia, is made up of 13 PhD professors, 1 IkerBasque research Professor, 5 PhD students, and 1 postdoctoral Marie Curie researcher. The group constitutes an adequate mix of push and research experience from various scientific fields (Physical Sciences, Engineering and Mathematics).

Nowadays, we collaborate with prestigious groups of the international scientific photonic community (CREOL, Keio University, Max Planck,..). In addition, part of our research work is being carried out in cooperation with several techological centres and companies in order to develop prototypes for industrial applications based on optical sensors or requiring them, such as aircraft monitoring, for example. Our research projects and activities require a well equipped laboratory both in the visible and infrared spectra, which was created and it is being improved thanks to finantial support from our local institutions and from the European ones.
