Light From Optical Fibers Can Induce Sound Waves

Researchers have developed a promising new fiber-optic based chemical sensing method that uses light inside a fiber to induce sound waves outside it, providing indirect information about what surrounds the fiber. By overcoming a significant limitation of existing sensors, the new method could improve sensing capabilities for a wide range of applications, including industrial processes and remote detection of chemicals.

NUP/UPNA-Public University Engineer Develops Bio-Sensor for Health Applications

One telecommunications engineer of NUP/UPNA-Public University of Navarre Mr.  Abián Bentor Socorro-Leránoz, has developed optical resonance-based biosensors for use in healthcare applications such as the detection of coeliac disease. Coeliac disease is an autoimmune disorder of the small intestine that occurs in genetically predisposed people of all ages from middle infancy onward. Symptoms include pain and discomfort in the digestive…

Japan’s Disaster Warning Systems Using Fiber Optic Cables

Japan’s biggest earthquake and monster tsunami had happened before more than one month from now. The country is recovering slowly from the natural disaster. It will take years to reconstruct the eastern parts of Japan that was destroyed by tsunami. Japan’s buildings are capable to withstand severe earthquakes, but the tsunami of that wildness was an unexpected natural disaster.
