Our keynote speaker will be

Dr. Jie Huang, assistant professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Missouri S&T, has performed research in instrumentation and measurement for more than ten years. He received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Clemson University in 2015. His research focuses on the development of optical and microwave sensors and instrumentation for applications in energy, intelligent infrastructures, clean-environment, and biomedical sensing. In particular, he has been working on fiber optic and microwave sensors and instrumentation for applications in harsh environments, integration of additively manufactured parts with sensors, and optical biomedical imaging, sensing, tomography/microscopy, and spectroscopy. Dr. Huang has successfully established the Lightwave Technology Laboratory (LTL) with a strong track record of sustained research funding, high-quality journal publications, and cutting edge research capabilities. In 2019, Dr. Huang established the Missouri S&T Blast Lab (the only lab of its kind in Missouri) for conducting fundamental studies of advanced fiber optic sensors for mitigating traumatic brain injuries from blunt impact force events. Dr. Huang led or participated in many externally-funded research projects include federal agencies such as the National Science Foundation, Army Research Lab, Department of Energy, National Labs, and select private companies, all historical supporters in the arena of advanced sensors.

Fiber Optic Sensors for Industrial Applications

The talk presents Dr. Huang’s recent inventions and breakthrough in the field of fiber optic sensors. The talk will specifically focus on the development of robust and easy-to-manufacture sensors that can be easily commercialized and have great potential for applications in the chemical-oil industry, construction industry, and other industries with harsh environments. The challenges of this interdisciplinary and crosscutting research direction will be discussed, and the potential solutions will be proposed.
