Multicore Optical Fiber for Sensing Applications
UCF Office of Research & Commercialization, FL, United States
UCF researchers have created a stable high-temperature sensor using a multicore fiber spliced between single-mode fibers. The device is capable of measuring temperatures of up to 1000Â°C in a very stable manner. This fiber sensor is able to be multiplexed along a multiple sensor chain and simultaneously measured.
Primary Application Area: Electronics, Sensors & Communications
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 4
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: This technology is ideally suited for the oil and gas industry due to its thin fiber design that is borehole compatible, and the capability to withstand very high temperatures and pressure indefinitely. Additionally, the design allows for chaining the sensors serially, and simultaneously monitoring them all.
