The research activity of the Laboratory of Fiber Optics (LFO) follows two main lines:

  • The development of optical fiber technologies to make available special fibers and fiber components,

  • The development of fiber lasers, special fiber light sources, and biosensors, exploiting the properties of in-fiber acousto-optics, high Q whispering gallery modes resonators, photonic crystal fibers, tapered fibers, and special fiber gratings.
