Assistant Professor in Optical and Bioelectronic Engineering, Faculty of Engineering
Ricardo Correia graduated in 2004 with a 5 year degree in Instrumentation and Industrial Quality Engineering from the Superior Institute of Engineering of Porto. In 2005 he joined the Engineering Photonics group at Cranfield University to pursuit a PhD in the development of a fibre optic pore pressure sensor employing fibre Bragg Gratings (FBGs). As a post-doctoral fellow in the Engineering Photonics he has further developed FBG sensors for civil engineering applications. He has developed expertise in field work applications for the installation of FBG strain gauges in construction sites that range from concrete piles to land-field membranes. He has now joined the Electrical Systems and Optics division of the University of Nottingham where he is currently working on the development of novel fibre optic sensors fo healthcare applications.
Over my ten years of research experience in photonics, I have worked on a variety of projects that have provided me with in-depth knowledge and expertise in the development and practical deployment of fibre optic sensing devices for a range of applications, such as civil engineering, automotive and aerospace.

My current research consists of the development of fibre optic sensors for healthcare applications. I am currently developing a fibre optic pressure sensor based on fibre Bragg gratings for measuring contact pressure on the cuff of endotracheal tubes used for the artificial ventilation in intensive care. I am also developing novel chemical sensors using long period gratings coated with chemical selective coatings.
My previous research focused on the development of fibre optic sensors for civil and mechanical engineering and aerospace applications.
