Dagenais Speaks on Bio-Sensor Research at IPRA Conference

ECE Professor Mario Dagenais was invited to speak at the international Integrated Photonics Research and Applications (IPRA) Conference in San Diego, California, on April 12, 2005.

Dagenais spoke about his research on fiber-optic Bragg grating sensors that are used to detect DNA hybridization. The sensors detect the hybridization of DNA by measuring the change of index on the surface of the fiber. Dr. Dagenais’ research team includes Maryland Agriculture Professor William Bentley, graduate student Athanasios Chryssis, postdocs Simarjeet Singh Saini and Sang-Mae Lee, and Dr. Hyunmin Yi.

The IPRA Conference is sponsored annually by the Optical Society of America.
