Optical fiber strain sensing is one of today's fastest developing technologies. The significant advantages that optical fiber sensors hold over more conventional sensors for component testing, design validation and structural health monitoring have long been understood. However, it is only within recent years that this unique technology has sufficiently matured to find true commercial application.
For over a decade, Smart Fibres have been leading the development of one optical sensor technology - the fiber Bragg grating, taking it from the research lab into a broad range of application arenas. The new markets opening for this technology that we have pioneered are many and varied, from military jets and space vehicles to bridges and tunnels.
With Smart Fibres, our customers are teamed up with the widest experience, the broadest range of product offerings, the most commercially viable sensing solutions and the most respected name in the industry.

AZoOptics speaks to Dr. Keith Paulsen about the importance of breast cancer detection and the introduction of his team's deep-learning algorithm that associates spatial images of tissue optical properties with optical signal patterns measured during an imaging experiment or patient exam.
Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino
AZoOptics speaks to Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino about their recent research using a new line-scanning high-speed atomic force microscopy technique. The method helps characterize the single-molecule kinetics of wild-type bR (bR-WT) exposed to continuous light and short light pulses.
