High Temperature Sensors
  • Development of sapphire optical fiber for IR transmission and very high temperature applications
  • These sensors are used as stress/strain sensors, or for temperature measurement

Stress & Strain Sensors

  • Sensors are embedded into various materials (ceramic, polymer and metallic) and structures for in-situ and real-time analysis
  • These sensors are used to evaluate the integrity of the structure as a real-time monitoring network to predict structural weakness
