Optical Fiber Sensors
Optical fiber sensors are the key technology behind DOMINO. Owing to their small form, surprising robustness and ability to transmit signals over very long distances, optical fibers enable the implementation of sensors with unparalleled characteristics.
Built to hold and regulate waters, dikes are rather common civil structures. Sometimes they fail causing great socio-economic damages. DOMINO contributes to the monitoring of these structures by developing novel sensors.
Among the water related events threatening mountain areas, debris flows are among the most disruptive ones. DOMINO aims at developing optical fiber sensors to monitor and analyze these phenomena.
