He is very active as both a researcher and an academician, with numerous ISI ranked research publications to his name, as well as supervising numerous undergraduate and postgraduate students in photonics.

Title:The use of optical fiber waveguides as a mean of detecting soil movement in landslide monitoring

Abstract: The conventional approach to landslide monitoring typically relies on electrical-based systems, which have several limitations. In this keynote address, the present electrical-based approach for landslide monitoring will be discussed, highlighting its drawbacks. As a promising alternative, the use of optical fiber waveguides will be presented as a mean of detecting soil movements. An overview will be provided on the inscription of fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) onto the optical waveguide. FBGs are highly sensitive to strain and temperature changes, making them ideal for monitoring soil movements. The FBGs will be integrated into an optical fiber system with 3D-printed designs specifically tailored for landslide monitoring applications. Furthermore, the keynote will highlight an experimental demonstration of field testing conducted at a high-risk slope site in Cameron Highlands, Malaysia, where landslides frequently occur. The keynote will also discuss the development of a remote sensing prototype, which enables real-time monitoring and data acquisition from the optical fiber sensors deployed at the landslide-prone site. The actual prototype and its capabilities will be showcased, emphasizing the potential for widespread adoption of this technology in landslide monitoring and early warning systems.
