Electronic instrumentation

Electronic instrumentation research includes development of a new type of non-contact optical sensor of vibration and other motion. New designs for free space optical communications are under study, both for transmission through the atmosphere and through water. Active and passive waveguides are needed for optical signal processing, telecommunications, optical data storage, and other applications. Fiber optics devices such as tunable filters and fiber lasers are being designed and built.
