Dimitrios Polyzos received his undergraduate diploma from the Department of Physics, School of Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences, National Technical University of Athens, in 2010. In 2012, he obtained his MSc degree in “Photonics and Lasers”, from the Department of Physics, University of Patras, Greece. His MSc thesis was on the experimental and theoretical study of optical fibre sensors with etched Bragg gratings. He is currently a PhD candidate at Applied Optics and Photonics research group in the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences at Heriot-Watt University.
Interests: His research interests include the theoretical and experimental study of sensors based on fibre Bragg gratings and of micro- structured optical fibres and the study of optical trapping on micro-structured surfaces. His current project as a PhD candidate focusses on the applications of Fabry-Perot optical fibre sensors at harsh environments and their stability response at high temperatures.
