3rd international POF Modeling Workshop

The POF Modeling Workshop focused on the modelling of sensor applications, special types of POF and the light propagation effects on POFs

The workshop was an excellent opportunity for scientists and engineers to share research and expand knowledge in different numerical methods, physics of the propagation oflight and hybrid modeling approaches. The contributions of the workshop were published in: POF Simulation beyond Data Transmission: Summary of the 3rd International POF Modeling Workshop 2015"

TRIPOD Workshop

This was the annual workshop of the TRIPOD Marie Curie Initial Training Network

TRIPOD is developing the technology and applications of polymer optical fiber grating sensors. The workshop contained a joint session with the modeling workshop listed above and was open to people outside the network interested in learning more about the technology.
