Integrated photonic free space sensor system for multiple applications

Integrated photonic free-space point sensor system capable of monitoring physical and chemical parameters at a point in a remote space by interrogating a sensor element by use of light beams.

The system comprises optics and electronics platform with transmitter, sensor head and receiver units optically coupled and also data acquisition and processing at the base station. The integrated system enables remote monitoring by interrogating a powerless element located at the remote point. At this point negligible power dissipation occurs.

The system has the potential of using multi-sensor platform for simultaneously monitoring several parameters. Remote operation is assisted by use of special atmosphere compensating optics and methods.

The photonic system thus offers unique advantages since it provides multisensor operations on a frame of many remote points in space thus producing extended sensory networks at low cost. Application specific systems can be available with relevant platforms designed to conform to individual needs.
