1st “PhotoNext Researchers' Day”: presentation from our PhD students in Photonics

UPDATE: in the new version of this page, you can also find the .pdf presentations given by all participants.

We are happy to announce the first edition of the "PhotoNext Researcher's Day", that will take place on June 19, 2023, from 14:00 to 18:30 in the Maxwell Room, Department of Electronics and Telecommunications, Politecnico di Torino.

The goal of the event is to allow PhD students of the PhotoNext Center to present their research activities in the area of Photonics and to “mix&match” scientific ideas and relations.

The event is open to everyone!

New paper published today on IEEE Photonic Journal

A new paper of ours was published today in IEEE Photonic Journal: it proposes a novel method for fast alarm generation in case of anomalous events (like large rockfalls or debris flows) in the alpine environment, using polarization-based fiber sensing.

Title:  Algorithm Optimization for Rockfalls Alarm System Based on Fiber Polarization Sensing

Authors: Saverio Pellegrini; Giuseppe Rizzelli; Marco Barla; Roberto Gaudino

You can find the paper at this link.  

Congratulations to all the co-authors!

Timetable for the lab closure in 2023

The days of LINKS Foundation (and consequently PhotoNext main Laboratory) closures for 2023 have been released. Please read this news to know the details.
