Polymer Optical Sensors for Prolonged Overseeing the Robustness of civil Infrastructures

Objective

The POSPORI project is dedicated to accelerating the deployment and use of polymer optical fibre Bragg grating (POFBG) sensing technology for prolonged overseeing the robustness of civil infrastructures. The two key research objectives are to develop optical fibre sensing systems to assess the stability of (i) reinforced concrete and (ii) reinforced soil structures, which are the key elements for safe construction in civil engineering. The project seeks to take a significant step beyond the current technology readiness level and enhance the creative and innovative potential of experienced researcher (Andreas Pospori) in the field of optical fibre sensors.
