The proposed project aims to research, design, manufacture and test new types of seismic sensors and measurement techniques based on optical principles.
These sensors and techniques belong to a new generation design having several targeted goals:
- to improve the resolution, dynamic range and accuracy in seismic measurements;
- to eliminate nearly totally the noise due to electrical signal transmission links between sensors and data loggers/computers (improving the signal/noise ratio);
- to eliminate the complex mechanics present in classical sensors. All prototype sensors will be calibrated in dedicated laboratories, tested in the field and finally used in seismic activity survey and measurements.
