Dr Elizaveta Klantsataya

Grant-Funded Researcher (A)

School of Physics, Chemistry and Earth Sciences

Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Technology

Dr Elizaveta Klantsataya obtained her PhD in Experimental Physics (Optical Fibre Sensing) from the Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing (IPAS) in 2017. Her PhD work focused on the development of a plasmonic optical fibre sensor for biochemical applications. Dr Klantsataya worked on an optical fibre based pH sensor for breast cancer detection, and development of Mid-IR fibre lasers for remote sensing applications. Currently, her work focuses on novel fluorescent spectroscopy techniques for identification of materials and sensing applications.

Research Interests
  • Development of a middle infrared fibre laser at 3.5 micron for atmospheric sensing, Qswitching of the laser for pulsed operation, laser frequency narrowing.
  • Development of a fibre-optic pH sensor for detection of breast cancer tissue during surgery, development of a portable devise for the use in operating theatre, optimisation of probe fabrication, building a clinically relevant database of tissue samples.
  • Development of a portable laser setup for testing of food quality in a commercial setting and data analysis.
