Course Description

Photonic technologies have played a key role in the last decades to address the high demand for data traffic by telecommunication networks and data centres. The industrial development of Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) optical communications systems and networks in the nineties and the more recent interest in photonic integration for data centres to overcome their well-known electronic bottleneck, have driven the technology to a high level of maturity, opening the way to many other industrial fields and applications. In particular, photonic technologies are becoming extremely attractive for sensing applications in a wide range of industrial fields, including energy, oil & gas, transportation, automotive, aerospace, bio-chemical and medical applications, as well as for structural health and environmental monitoring. Optical fiber sensors and photonic sensors, in general, offer many advantages compared to conventional electronic-based sensors immunity to electromagnetic interference, small size and weight, high multiplexing capabilities, robustness to harsh environments, as well as the fact of being completely passive at the sensing points.The Seasonal School “PHOTONS@” will introduce participants to a basic knowledge of photonic technologies to address the increasing demand from large companies and research institutions for specific applications of the technology in their own industrial and research sectors.
