Fiber optics solutions provider, Timbercon declared that an ultra-high speed Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) Sensor System has been introduced in the market. The announcement was made at the SPIE-Defense, Security + Sensing conference in Orlando, Florida.
Four readout channels can be used to configure the Ultra-High Speed FBG Sensor System, which comes packed in a rackmount box. The package includes an Ibsen Integrator, ASE light source, power supply and Fiber Bragg Grating Sensors that are either standard or chirped.
The Ultra-High Speed FBG Sensor System can be utilized to measure pressure, position, velocity and temperature with nanosecond resolution over lengths greater than 100 mm.
Chadd May and Jerry Benterou of Lawrence Livermore National Lab, along with Eric Udd of CGR, presented a paper titled HighSpeed Measurements Using Fiber-Optic Bragg Gratings on April 28th 2011. Detailed results of two Ultra-High Speed FBG Sensor Systems used for blast wave measurement and detonation were discussed.
The Vice President of Sales & Marketing, John Lee mentioned that the FBG Sensor System will enable researchers to supervise events at faster pace and greater resolutions.
