FOGS - Fibre Optic Gas Sensing

Sponsor: Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic

Principal investigator: Zdeněk Švitorka, MSc.

Co-principal investigator: Tomáš Martan, Ph.D.

From: 2011-01-01

To: 2014-12-31

International project (participants: Czech Republic, Germany, Great Britain) is focused on evelopment of a miniaturized integrated sensor system which will be applied for CO2 detection. The sensor is based onn fibre optic and/or planar components built in fully portable system. The miniaturized sensor system will be controlled and data will be evaluated by a PC.

The goal of the part of the project solved in UFE (Institute of Photonic and Electronics AS CR) is development of optical-chemical transducers working on absorption principles, finding suitable matrix for optical-chemical transducers and immobilization of transducers on transparent optical surface.



IPE carries out fundamental and applied research in the scientific fields of photonics, optoelectronics and electronics. In these fields, IPE generates new knowledge and develops new technologies.
