Sensors for harsh environments

Jump to: navigation, search

Optical sensors are of particular interest for applications in harsh environments.

By harsh environments, we mean:

  • In explosive environments
  • Under high electromagnetic perturbations
  • Close to high static magnetic sources (MRI for example)

Optical sensors developed:

  • Smart material using embedded optical fibres (collaboration with LERMPS and LEME)
  • Single block MRI compatible optical force sensor (collaboration with the AVR team in ICube)
  • Hydrogen optical fibre sensor using plasmonic resonance (collaboration with University of Delft)
  • Highly accurate absolute distance measurement
