Key State Laboratory on Integrated Optoelectronics, Jilin University, China
The Centre has an active collaboration with the Waveguide & Component Group, Key State Laboratory of Integrated Optoelectronics at Jilin University in China. Research collaboration is focused on ion-exchanged processes for photonic integrated circuits for wavelength measurement and also for photoluminescence studies.

The Centre recently acquired funding from European MATERA project in collaboration with Warsaw University of Technology and a Polish helicopter manufacturer, PZL-Swidnik S.A. The research will investigate the development of smart composite structures for the aviation industry based on a hybrid sensing approach in a composite in order to provide simultaneous in-situ distributed measurement of strain, temperature and vibration. Using FBG sensors combined with HB polarimetric sensors should overcome the limitations of the individual sensor technologies and ensure high accuracy of measurements.
