Pie Photonics: Mobilizing Static Fiber Interferometry

Dominic Murphy

Tech advancements have led to miniaturized computers, phones and cameras, so why not interferometers? Dominic Murphy, CEO of Pie Photonics, describes how his fledgling company is devising mobile measurement solutions intended to displace larger systems.

I became smitten with interferometry, spectrometry and Fourier processing as an undergraduate at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth, where I earned a degree in physics and mathematics in 1996. During my third- and fourth-year projects, I measured photoelectric work functions, coded Fourier routines, and analyzed molecular spectra. This work inspired me to develop simple, mobile optical measurement devices.
