Over the years, FBGS has accumulated a wide variety of references from a variety of industries, including Medical, Transportation, Energy and Composite.
The ability to embed fiber sensors within a composite material or on a composite material gives engineers scope to measure strain on components during manufacturing and use under varying environmental conditions.
As Fiber Bragg Grating sensors work through guiding optical signals in glass material, they are immune to any electromagnetic radiation and can additionally be used in explosive or corrosive environments to measure dynamic strain in flexible pipelines or temperature on high voltage power transmission windings.
The opportunity to monitor structures and the ground on which they are standing over extended periods is used by engineers to measure the effects of load or environmental conditions. This might be for the purpose of design verification, to monitor natural aging processes or to measure the damaging effect of earthquakes.
The benefits of Fiber Bragg Grating sensors such as small size, light weight, electromagnetic immunity and high sensitivity make them highly suited for use in many areas of robotic and non robotic medical diagnosis and treatment.
Process industry applications are often within very noisy electrical environments, with power supplies, electric motors and other switching equipment located mostly in harsh environments. Due to the strong resistance of the glass, FBG sensors are perfectly suited for temperature and pressure measurement for process control in the petro- and pharmaceutical industry.
Investigations during product design and development require a deep understanding of the product behaviour under various conditions. Fiber Bragg Gratings provide many benefits to carry out these measurements for temperature, strain, pressure and many other physical parameters.
Fiber optic technology has revolutionized the telecommunication industry by enabling high-capacity, high-bandwidth long distance communications at very low cost. FBGs are used today as stabilizers for laser light sources or are utilized as back reflectors in laser resonators or for monitoring the signal quality of optical transmission lines.
FBG Sensors can make transportation easier, safer and more ‘intelligent’. By introducing FBGs as axle counting sensors in railways or as temperature sensors in airplane wings they eliminate all disadvantages of conventional electrical sensors.
