High-tech machines are being improved by extend- ing product quality inspections through implementing better sensors. The resolution of an integrated optical sensor can be optimized through mechanical amplification. In this work mechanical sensitivity enhancement of a Fiber Bragg Grating based sensor is realized, through optimizing output...

Magnetostrictive strain sensors with high spinorbit coupling have been integrated with Fiber-Bragg-Grating sensors wherein the gap within the gratings varies with strain within the encapsulating magnetostrictive material. Terfenol-D has been chosen as the mm sized magnetostrictive material which exhibits the largest known bulk...

Prognosis of the Remaining Useful Life (RUL) of a structure from Structural Health Monitoring data is the ultimate level in the SHM hierarchy. Reliable prognostics are key to a Condition Based Maintenance paradigm for aerospace systems and structures. In the present work, we propose a methodology for RUL prognosis of generic aeronautical...

In this article, a deep learning method for the shape sensing of continuum robots based on multicore fiber bragg grating (FBG) fiber is introduced. The proposed method, based on an artificial neural network (ANN), differs from traditional approaches, where accurate shape reconstruction requires a tedious characterization of many...

We present a generic methodology for developing a Health Indicator out of strain-based Structural Health Monitoring data suitable for implementation in prognostic tasks. For this purpose, an in-house test campaign is launched. Single-stringered composite panels are subjected to compression-compression fatigue with the strains being monitored...

Integration of photonic circuits on silicon offers a unique opportunity to address the scaling of inter- and intra-chip communications in an energy-efficient and cost-effective manner. Mode-division multiplexing (MDM) is deemed as one of the most promising technologies to increase aggregated data bandwidth and avoid a communication capacity...

A digital twin representative of a typical composite stiffened panel is utilized to monitor skin-to-stringer disbonds. A validated finite element model of the composite panel estimates the longitudinal strains of the pristine state, at the exact location where integrated fiber Bragg grating sensors are permanently installed. Experimental...

The aerospace industry is an ever-evolving field that has seen many technological advances over the past decades. The desire for aircraft to be not only efficient and reliable but also cheaper and safer has brought about many proposals across the industry. One of these advances is towards morphing aircraft wings to make wings lighter, more...

Currently, the amount of space debris is increasing rapidly due to the tremendous amount of satellite launches. Having an autonomous re-entry system aboard satellites at their end-of life, creates possibilities in the frame of lowering space debris, as well as for sample return from space. This paper aims at describing two possible deployment...

In this paper, with the final aim of shape sensing for a morphing aircraft wing section, a developed multimodal shape sensing system is analysed. We utilise the method of interrogating a morphing wing section based on the principles of both hybrid interferometry and Fibre Bragg Grating (FBG) spectral sensing described in our previous work....

To perform active structural health monitoring (SHM), guided waves (GW) have received great interest as they can inspect large areas with a few sensors and are sensitive to barely-visible structural damages. Fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensors offer several advantages such as small size, low weight and ability to be embedded but their use has...

In this study, a multi-level Structural Health Monitoring methodology for stiffened composite panels is introduced. A digital twin (DT), that is, a three-dimensional finite element (FE) model, representing the pristine state baseline of the test article, is developed and verified for compressive loading in the post-buckling regime. The...

Distinguishing between photothermal and non-thermal contributions is essential in plasmon catalysis. Use of a tailored optical temperature sensor based on fiber Bragg gratings enabled us to obtain an accurate temperature map of an illuminated plasmonic catalyst bed with high spatiotemporal resolution. Its importance for quantification of the...

The optimization of mode excitation coefficients in linear periodic arrays of multi-mode antenna elements is studied for grating lobe reduction. A novel beamforming architecture is proposed with a new optimization problem based on equi-amplitude element excitations for optimal power efficiency. The capabilities of the proposed synthesis approach...

An angle sensitive optical sensor without conventional optics is presented in this article. The reported device omits the need for adding 3-D optics in postprocessing by monolithic integration of complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor compatible diffraction grating layers, which cuts down the fabrication costs and allows for miniaturization...

Spatial modes of light can be used as carriers of information in classical optical communication or as an alphabet in quantum optical communication. In order to exploit the spatial domain, it is required to (de)multiplex different modes from a shared input channel into different output ports. Mode sorters have been employed in free-space and...

Continuum robots such as robotic catheters are increasingly being used in minimally invasive surgery. Compliance contributes to enhanced safety during e.g. catheter insertion, however, estimation of contact force and location may help clinicians avoiding exerting excessive force. Ultimately this could lead to faster and safer interventions....

We present an analysis of the bandwidth of an asymmetric 8-beam Fourier grating as the beam multiplexer for a 4.7 THz local oscillator used in a heterodyne receiver. We take the grating designed for NASA GUSTO balloon observatory as an example to address the bandwidth question although it does not need to operate over a wide frequency range....

For radar imaging, resolution and dynamic range are two critical metrics to measure image quality. MIMO array exploits the spatial diversity of transmitters and receivers to achieve high cross-range resolution with fewer antennas than array-based imaging.<br/> Generally, to make full use of the sparsity, at least the transmit array or the...

Localization of a light source in the space requires capturing its light intensity and angle information. However, conventional CMOS image sensors can only capture light intensity and wavelength. These sensors need to be augmented with an optical extension such as an aperture or a lens in order to capture the angle information. The use of...
