1 Frank Tutu PhD Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, UCL BITE Industrial Fibercore: Specialty optical fiber for sensing applications

2 Outline About me Fibercore: Introduction Overview of BITE projects at Fibercore Current status

3 About me UCL in Electronic and Electrical Engineering Interest in photonics and energy technologies UCL Photonics group: Design and Fabrication of III-V Quantum Dot Solar Cells April 2014 joined the Development team at Fibercore on the BITE scheme

4 Fibercore: Introduction

5 Fibercore was formed as a spin-out from the Optical Fiber Group at the University of Southampton. Fibercore is a manufacturer of specialty optical fiber mostly for sensing applications Customer support activities are key to the business

6 Fibercore: Introduction Shipping > 1,000,000 metres of specialty fiber, every month Worldwide; business in 50 countries Highly diversified business serving many industry sectors:  Energy  Aerospace,  Bio-Medical,  Civil Engineering  Telecoms 30 years experience dedicated to specialty fibers

7 Global #1 supplier of fibers for Fiber Optic Gyroscopes Global #1 supplier of optical fibers for current sensors Fibercore: Introduction

8 BITE Projects

9 Smart Grid – Market for optical current sensors Investigated the size of the smart grid sensor market, focusing on the market size of optical current sensors Reviewed the key players within the manufacture of optical current sensors Gained an insight into optical fiber industry Results of study presented to Sales team and the Head of Strategy & New Markets BITE Projects

10 Fiber Optic Gyroscopes (FOGs) are being used in increasing severe temperature environments in excess of the normal operating range Therefore high temperature acrylate (HTA) which can operate to 150⁰C was assessed Results published in Inertial Sensors and Systems Conference and IEEE Xplore New Product in Fibercore’s 2015 brochure BITE Projects Qualification of High Temperature Acrylate Coating

11 Employed at Fibercore as Development and Project Engineer Working on: Customer support activities Development and optimisation of coating package design used in polarisation maintaining fiber Project management of key technical improvements and qualifications Current Status
