    Air-Sensing Technology Combats Dangerous Chemical Exposure

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    University of Navarra scientists in Spain and partners from European photonics innovation hub ACTPHAST 4R are collaborating to develop technology capable of detecting lethal and highly explosive chemicals in industrial settings. The team is working to build a demonstrator, relying exclusively on photonics and capable of employing optical sensing technology that can recognize toxic and explosive solvents in chemical plants.

    The new device uses optical fibers to monitor air quality, offering an alternative to sensor devices with electrical (and potentially flammable) components. In addition to providing a solution in areas where electricity is forbidden, the technology aims to improve the probability of safe chemical monitoring…
