Sensors and Detectors
This suite of tools provides reliable detection and characterization of anomalies (e.g., voids, cracks, and areas of delamination) in composite structures made of nonmetallic materials, such as reinforced carbon-carbon and carbon-fiber-reinforced polymers.
A suite technologies for use in logistics and distribution, medical and industrial robotics, and hazardous, toxic, or remote environments.
This shape-sensing technology is a lightweight, robust fiber optic sensor system that represents a major breakthrough in sensing technology.
Cryogenic and Non-Cryogenic Optical Liquid Level Instrument for Stratified Conditions (link opens new browser window)
A simplified, cost-saving measurement device that uses optical transmission properties.
This compact, lightweight, integrated gas sensor is capable of monitoring and detecting leaks in real time. The fiber-optic, laser-based leak detector uses an array of interferometric and spectroscopic techniques to measure gas density, temperature, species determination, and species concentrations.
This novel technology enhances the performance of surface acoustic wave radio frequency tags for passive radio frequency identification and sensor applications. The innovation significantly extends operational range without necessitating additional transmit power.
