granted on 28/11/2018 by the French Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation
MAIN CONTRIBUTIONS TO the FIBER OPTIC COMMUNITY
André CHAMPAVERE is ISROS WG4 Sub-group 4 Leader for Distributed Fibre Optic Sensing inside the WG4: “State of the art on optical fibre sensing systems”
ARUFOG Association (Association for the research and use of optical fiber and guided optics). Since 1986, ARUFOG has maintained a balance between academic and industrial players to focus on new applications of optical fiber.
The GO2S® initiative (Guided Optics & Sensor Systems) created in 2008 by André CHAMPAVERE within the ARUFOG Association (Association for the research and use of optical fiber and guided optics) focuses on new applications of fiber optics as a sensor or sensor network.
Exploring the IEEE library, you can find André Champavere as the author or co-author of several publications in the fiber optic measurement and sensing domains.
GO2S GUIDED OPTICS & SENSOR SYSTEMS
After the GO2S 2019 conference, which took place in Paris, at the Ministry of the Economy, Finance, Action and Public Accounts, GO2S 2020 was held on February 11 and 12, 2020, at the Hôtel de Region in the Confluence district of LYON. .

W3D.1 • 13:00 Invited New OTDR Measurement and Monitoring Techniques, Andre CHAMPAVERE Since its first introduction three decades ago, optical-time-division reflectometry has become an indispensable tool to characterize fiber optic links in longdistance and local-area networks. We review the evolution of this technology and discuss emerging applications. .
Patent activity in the Telecom & Fiber sensing domains: Wavelength identification and analysis sensor, Dual Wavelength distributed temperature sensing with built-in fiber integrity, Optical reflective marker adaptor for a patch cord in OTDR applications and others not yet published.
FIBER OPTIC MEASUREMENT & SENSING
Main focus on Distributed Fiber Optic Sensing because based on fiber optic time or frequency domain reflectometry technics for temperature, strain, acoustic or other measurands using the scattering phenomena ( Rayleigh, Raman, Brillouin).
