Abstract:
In this work it will be presented the results concerning the research developed at the Photonics Laboratory of the Military Institute of Engineering in Brazil. Optical devices and systems were investigated to be applied in optical sensors and communications systems. The research was developed through numerical simulations and experimental measurements. Broadband Raman amplifiers, optical isolators, fiber gratings based sensors are among the devices studied. In addition, the impact of nonlinearities such as four wave mixing in the performance of amplified optical communications systems is also verified. Finally a free space optics system is developed and its performance is examined. 

About Professor Maria Thereza Miranda Rocco Giraldi:
Prof. Maria Thereza Miranda Rocco Giraldi graduated in Communications Engineering in 1986 at Federal Fluminense University, Niteroi, Brazil. She took her Master and PhD in Electrical Engineering in 1989 and 1995 at Pontifical Catholic University, Rio de Janeiro, and UNICAMP, Campinas, Brazil, respectively. She is an Associate Professor at the Military Institute of Engineering from the Brazilian Army. She has been working with Optical Communication and Sensors, more specifically with optical devices and systems, WDM systems, free-space optics communications, optical amplifiers and fiber sensors.
