S & T Professor Works To Develop Game Changing Fiber Optic Sensors

A researcher at Missouri S&T is helping to develop fiber optic sensors that can be used in harsh and extreme environments, which could be used to discover new information. Dr. Jie  Huang is an Endowed Associate Professor of electrical engineering at Missouri S&T giving just one example of what his sensors can do…

Huang  is a principal investigator on several fiber-optic-related projects, with the total federal grant funding more than $14 million dollars. In partnership with the U.S. military, Huang is also developing crystals with optical fiber that can detect smells, such as dangerous gases or chemicals.   (From Missourinet)
