Notable Research Contribution
  • Fibre Bragg grating (FBG) based embeddable, spot-weldable and surface mountable packaged sensor housing has been developed for strain and temperature measurement towards health monitoring of concrete and steel structure.
  • Developed packaged fiber Bragg grating (array/single) temperature sensor for industrial application.
  • Design and developed the compact vibration sensing device based on fiber Bragg grating sensor for health monitoring of civil structure (building and bridges) and also for high voltage electrical equipment.
  • Coated of high refractive index material on long period fiber grating (LPFG) sensor with nanometer thickness has been developed towards label -free bio-sensing application.
