MONTREAL -- LxSix Photonics, a privately held designer of new photonic processes and manufacturing technologies for advanced optical components, introduces low cost fiber optic sensors for Smart Optical Sensing applications, based on proprietary Write-OnTM technology.

LxSensorTM Series is a fully customizable line of FBG-based multi-sensor arrays. Using LxSix's highly automated manufacturing processes and advanced Bragg writing technology, numerous sensors can be coupled on a single fiber with no physical splicing; permitting distributed sensing over large infrastructure projects.

LxSensorTM Series is ideally suited for smart sensing applications involving strain, temperature and pressure monitoring. The LxSensor TM Series is targeted at emerging applications such as smart structural monitoring, smart oil wells and pipelines, smart critical infrastructure monitoring, as well as smart aerospace and shipboard sensing. Each sensor within the array can be detected independently by the sensing instruments to obtain a distributed measurement over large structures. Multiple sets of data can be acquired every second to provide real time measurement.

"FBG-based sensors are rapidly gaining in popularity due to inherent ease of use and superior properties. With the ability to distinguish strain and temperature, they are opening the door to a new generation of smart optical sensing applications", stated Robert Caporuscio, VP Marketing and Business Development for LxSix. "We're looking for cooperation with industry partners to develop fiber optic sensor markets and applications. Our objective is to combine forces towards advancing standards as it relates to specifications/packaging and installation procedures which would bring true solutions to the marketplace."
