First of all, Happy New Year to everyone!  I hope you will have a healthy, happy, and productive year in photonics research.

Just before the holidays, we received the good news that we were awarded a NSERC Collaborative Research and Development grant to develop fiber optic sensor arrays for leak detection of pipelines over large distances in remote areas.  The project will be carried out in close collaboration with Shawcor (a Canadian leading integrated services company for the resources industry).  Let’s make these pipelines safe!
