Performance comparison between FOS and PZT AE sensors

Performance comparison between FOS and PZT AE sensors

The white-paper written in collaboration with CETIM operated by ANDRA is out!  Our optical acoustic emission system OptimAE is ready to tackle difficult measurements in harsh environments, with performance comparable to the state-of-the-art electrical systems. ...

Successful sea trial of Optics11 fiber optic hydrophone array

Successful sea trial of Optics11 fiber optic hydrophone array

Major milestone ✔  This month we had a successful sea trial of our 4 node hydrophone array. After years of development and several iterations of the individual sensors and readout we proved our array is capable of detecting underwater sound sources up to hundreds of...

Fiber optic seismic sensors detected the Norcia earthquake

Fiber optic seismic sensors detected the Norcia earthquake

Our fiber technology was used in a study on optical fiber acceleration sensors by the University of Sannio in Italy. The seismic sensors were able to accurately measure the Norcia earthquake in 2016.  Congratulation on the publication Andrea and Marco!  The full...
