Sentea has the ambition to become a market leader in fiber optic sensor interrogators leveraging the benefits of Silicon Photonics.
Fiber optic sensing allows for highly accurate and robust structural health monitoring solutions, predicting and preventing equipment failure and structural damage to infrastructure. Unaffected by electro-magnetic fields and resistant to extreme temperatures and stress fiber optic sensors can be used even in the most harsh environments. Furthermore these sensors can also be used to monitor, control and improve the efficiency of equipment and processes.
Traditional interrogators contain expensive and mechanically assembled optical parts limiting the use of fiber optic sensors to high-end applications. Using Silicon Photonics, Sentea can make interrogators small and cost-effective, bringing fiber optic sensing to a wide range of applications in markets such as wind, oil and gas energy, construction of civil infrastructure, heavy industry and transport.

Dr. Keith Paulsen
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.
R. Bruce Weisman
AZoOptics interviews R. Bruce Weisman from Rice University in Texas, US, who has discovered fluorescence from silicon nanoparticles in cement and how it can be used to reveal early signs of damage in concrete structures.
