A fiber Bragg grating (FBG) is a type of distributed Bragg reflector fabricated in a short segment of optical fiber which acts as a filter that reflects particular wavelengths of light and transmits all others. Fiber Bragg grating (FBG) is a type of reflector placed in optical fiber that reflects particular wavelength of light and transmits the required one. FGBs are made by exposing the core of single-mode fiber to a periodic pattern of high ultraviolet light. This produces a permanent increase in refractive index, creating a fixed index modulation according to exposure pattern.
Continuous improvements related to fiber Bragg grating writing system, i.e. flexible automation of fiber and mask handling design, is expected to result in increased demand for fiber Bragg grating, as it is widely used in optical sensing applications. Besides fiber Bragg gratings have several applications in telecommunications and oil & gas industries, application scope is also wide and increasing for smart manufacturing and non-destructive testing, which includes composites, laminates, etc. It is also widely used in pressure, strain, and temperature sensing.
Among the product type segments, uniform fiber Bragg grating type segment in the global fiber Bragg grating market is estimated to register a CAGR of over 14% over the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing adoption of acrylic fiber Bragg grating due to its strong wavelength reflected as it satisfies the Bragg condition.
On the basis of application segments, optical fiber sensing segment is projected to register highest CAGR of over 15% owing to factors such as fiber Bragg grating sensors’ ability to overcome challenges associated with electrical sensing such as being lightweight, miniaturized, and having low thermal conductivity, etc.

Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?

Cyber resilience will be particularly important as Australian organisations face increased pressure to quickly detect, respond to, and manage the repercussions of breaches in the wake of 2018’s Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme.
