SHUTE Sensing Solutions A/S
We have developed a novel polymer optical fiber sensor system, which enables real-time monitoring of strain, humidity, temperature and also vibrations in points along a hair-thin optical fiber.
Compared to existing solutions, our sensors are:
• Very flexible and easy to embed in hard or soft materials
• 30 times more sensitive to strain than silica fiber sensors and
• 20 times more sensitive to stress
• Stretchable – up to 6% elongation
• Humidity sensitive - survives 100% RH
We are testing the technology in real environments with several different industrial partners. We are currently testing the sensors & fibers in the following areas:
• Concrete floors & elements
• Superior composite materials
• Industrial components
• Medical devices
• Wind turbines
