Title: “Development of Optical Fiber Sensors for Various Applications”, Prof. Kim Taesung


Thanks to light weight/small size, high sensitivity/large band width, long range operation, and harsh environment capability, optical fiber has gained immense attention in sensor field. The optical fiber sensor can be either intrinsic or extrinsic type considering the passage of light and its optical modulation mechanism can be by intensity, phase, wavelength and polarization. It has been used to measure various chemical and physical properties, such as temperature, pH, pressure, humidity, flow rate, gas concentration, liquid level, radiation, displacement, vibration, and chemical species.

Prof. Kim Taesung

Dr. Taesung Kim received his Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering from Seoul National University, Korea in 1994. He received his Master’s, and Ph. D. in Mechanical Engineering from University of Minnesota, USA in 1998 and 2002, respectively, focusing on particle and aerosol research. He joined Seagate Technology in 2002 and worked as Senior and Staff Engineer in Recording Head R&D.

Since 2005 Dr. Kim has been a professor in the School of Mechanical Engineering and SKKU Advanced Institute of Nanotechnology (SAINT), Sungkyunkwan University in Suwon, Korea. In 2014, he was appointed as SKKU Young Fellow and started working for SKKU Research & Business Foundation as a Vice President. His research interests include 2-D material synthesis, optical fiber sensors, semiconductor/display manufacturing process (CMP, cleaning and contamination control), and atmospheric/indoor aerosol control.
