Industrial sensors are devices that play a crucial role in numerous technical processes and can be an indispensable part of the manufacturing process. Especially under the current trend of factory transition into digitally smart environments, towards the industry 4.0 manufacturing concept, the demand for new sensing technologies is increasing rapidly.

This one-day hands-on training course provides industry representatives with an introduction to state of the art optical fibre sensors and the opportunity to fabricate and evaluate prototype sensing systems tailored to specific industrial application.

The course will focus on three technology demonstrators; 1) Optical fiber high temperature (~800οC) sensor; 2) Optical fiber humidity sensor; 3) Optical fiber volatile organic compounds sensor. The design, fabrication and performance of these sensors will be covered through tutorials and hand on experience.

  • Understanding of key features of optical fiber sensor design for industrial applications
  • Participate in the fabrication of state of the art optical fiber sensors  (hands-on activity)
  • Observe and evaluate working optical fiber sensors (hands-on activity)
  • Communicate and seek solutions for specific concerns related to sensing requirements 
No experience
It is desirable but not essential that course attendees have a basic understanding of photonics. The course is ideally suited to those seeking to adopt new sensing technologies in order to advance manufacturing facilities in terms of productivity, safety and efficiency.
