Optical Sciences

Biomolecules and nanostructures

The Optical Sciences group studies the interaction of light and matter. Our current focus is on detection and sensing/imaging with an emphasis on the development of integrated photonics. We are part of Twente University's Department of Science and Technology and member of the MESA+ institute.


Development of an optical fiber based groundwater flow sensor

  • Sandra Drusova - PhD student
  • Herman Offerhaus - Chair

  • Fiber Bragg gratings sensors can be used to determine temperature with a high accuracy. Combining a heating cable with several temperature sensors allows for determination of (very slow) flow.
