Low-profile conformal wireless passive sensors for harsh environment applications
University of Central Florida, Florida, United States
Low profile, conformal wireless passive temperature and pressure sensors are fabricated using Polymer-Derived Ceramics (PDCs) to withstand high-temperature (e.g. > 1000°C) and corrosive gases in harsh environment applications. The material properties of PDC’s and passive nature make the sensor robust and resistant to environments where active devices cannot survive.
Primary Application Area: Aerospace & Defense
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 6
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: Existing techniques using optical, SAW, and microsensor (wired) technology cannot achieve high temperature (>1000°C) sensing due to fundamental issues in packaging. The proposed sensing technology overcomes the limitations of existing technologies and makes it applicable to high-temperature systems such as turbine engines, nuclear power plants, and rockets, among others.
