Mr Roman Kostecki

I completed my B.Sc (Physics and Mathematics) with honours at Flinders University in 2010. For one year, from July 2010, I worked as a research assistant at the Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing, Adelaide University, working with optical fibres with application to biomedical sensing using surface plasmon resonance. I started my PhD in August 2011, for which the project aim is to develop microstructured optical fibre sensors for the application of corrosion sensing of aircraft. My PhD project is in collaboration with the Australian Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO), and opportunities for national and international collaborations became possible after successfully producing silica microstructured optical fibres with the core exposed along the whole length for the first time. The silica exposed core fibre work was published in a feature issue (Specialty Optical Fibers) of Optical Materials Express 2012, appears in Energy Express (a supplement to Optics Express), and was one of two papers chosen by the Optical Society (OSA) for inclusion in `Spotlight on Optics’. This work on the silica exposed core fibre has opened up opportunities in other sensing research.
