Novel optical devices and techniques for seismic activity detection and measurement

Cel

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.
