TD1001: Novel and Reliable Optical Fibre Sensor Systems for Future Security and Safety Applications (OFSeSa)

Optical Fibre Sensors offer a definitive solution to monitoring extreme parameters associated with security and safety applications. While the advantages of such sensors are well known, there are a number of identified technical problems yet to be resolved. By supporting collaboration of experts from multidisciplinary fields, to share their knowledge in sensor development and system design, together with developing characterisation and validation procedures, these problems can be addressed and so new generation optical fibre sensor systems can be realised awarding fundamentally stable and reliable sensors for enhancing public security and safety.

Action News



European Workshop on Optical Fibre Sensors for Industrial Applications

Date: September 30, 2014

Location: ENSEEIHT, Toulouse, France (map)

This workshop is the last dissemination event of the Action and is targeting to both display the latest results on optical fibre sensors achieved during the Action and provide a forum for companies and Action members to exchange on the industrial needs in optical fibre sensors.

The final programme can be found here.

The workshop is open to everyone free of charge. For further information or to register for this workshop (if you haven't registered via the COST system), please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
