Timbercon Announces HighSpeed Measurement System Using Fiber-Optic Bragg Gratings

Timbercon is a fiber optics product and solutions manufacturing company. It has announced the availability of an Ultra-High Speed Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) Sensor System at the SPIE-Defense, Security + Sensing conference in Orlando, Florida.

The Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Timbercon, John Lee said that this system will allow researchers to monitor events at speeds and resolutions previously unattainable. He added that the company had been working on the development of the sensor system for some time with Eric Udd of Columbia Gorge Research (CGR).

The sensor system can be custom configured for four readout channels such as an ASE light source, Ibsen Integrator, chirped or normal Fiber Bragg Grating Sensors, and power supply. The system can be used to measure position, velocity, temperature and pressure. All this can be done with a resolution of a few nanoseconds or less over lengths that are in excess of 100mm.

Jerry Benterou and Chadd May of Lawrence Livermore National Lab, and Eric Udd of CGR will be detailing the result of the first two Ultra-High Speed FBG Sensor Systems for detonation and blast wave measurement. The will do so by presenting a paper entitled HighSpeed Measurements Using Fiber-Optic Bragg Gratings.
