    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    My research covers photonic technology areas including optical fibre devices, sensors and system integration, optical communication, optical fibre Bragg grating, micro/nano photonic devices, biophotonic, label-free biosensor, chemsensor, optical waveguide theory, fibre laser, semiconductor laser, ultrafast fast laser and micromachining. With a strongly application-oriented research and close collaboration with industries like BAe, Airbus and SMEs, I have been the investigator or principle researcher on a number of large research and development programmes, including InnovateUK projects and ERDF projects. The research output has been outstanding with 200 publications, 2409 citations and google H-index of 29

    Highlights:

    • Tilted fibre grating technologies
    • Femtosecond laser micro-machining of optical fibre for photonic and microfluidic devices
    • Innovative exploitation of label-free biosensor for fast, sensitive and real-time detection of DNA.
    • In-fibre polariser fibre using 45 tilted fibre Bragg grating.
