2009 Frost & Sullivan Award Winning sensor generates & measures stimulated brillouin scattering in optical fibers to provide high-resolution simultaneous measurements of strain and temperature along the entire fiber length. By wrapping or embedding a standard telecom fiber inside a structure such as an oil pipeline, power lines or dam, users can detect when and where the structure is being strained or heated and correct the problem before failure occurs. It is ideal for monitoring large structures including oil & gas pipelines, bridges, power lines, dams, and security fences. The sensor could also be used in detecting fire and corrosion/erosion.
