AN EMERGING RESEARCH GROUP AT FEDERAL UNIVERSITY OF GOIÁS - BRAZIL

Photonics can be defined as the science and technology of light, which is a broad but accurate definition. Photonics is nowadays transversally applied in various fields of science and technology. 

 

In June 2021, the Photonics Research Group emerged with two lines of research: experimental and theoretical. The main objective is to play an interdisciplinary role between optics and different fields of science and technology. The integration of optical techniques, materials, and devices within agriculture and nuclear radiation are two examples, which will start through fundamental research aiming to develop novel photonic devices.

AgriPhotonics 

(Binding Industry & Academia)

Agriphotonics has already drastically improved precision agriculture. However, conventional sensors are still used for their performance and low cost. Replacing conventional sensors with photonic ones requires a better understanding of acquiring physical parameters in the real world (off-lab). Therefore, we have developed a low-cost DAQ system using conventional sensors to measure physical parameters in the subsoil of sugar cane crops. The main goal is to substitute traditional sensors with photonic devices or techniques to obtain the same information. Finally, this joint research project is a perfect example of how to bind industry and academia.

Controlling Whitefly Pest With Laser

Whitefly Bemisia tabaci is among the most important agricultural pests in the world and one of the world’s top 10 most invasive insect pests. We have published a paper proposing a solution to control this pest using a laser — the first successful case of our collaboration with EMBRAPA.
