Andreas PosporiAndreas Pospori, with a BSc in Electrical & Electronic Engineering from Cyprus University of Technology (CUT), joined the TRIPOD project to contribute towards work on polymer fibre grating UV fabrication and testing at Aston University. His knowledge includes inscription and micro-machining using femtosecond laser systems. In particular, he has made inscriptions in novel flexible glass flat-fibre chips and in a recent publication has demonstrated the ability to create complex structures, such as microfluidic devices, resonators and Bragg gratings using the point by point inscription method.
