Advanced laser sensor systems for leading edge manufacturing

Objective

The proposal targets the development of novel sensors to achieve next generation product quality and process control levels. Optical sensors based on tuneable diode lasers in near infrared have clear advantages in many applications where for instance non-invasive, in-situ technique is required. It can also be the only industrial choice where reactive or corrosive gases are involved. Recent rapid developments in technologies critical to NIR-Diode Laser spectroscopy, mainly in the telecoms industry, and the emergence of potential new application areas have catalysed this proposal and hold out the potential for a step change in spectroscopic monitoring. Five promising applications have been first selected. The partnership is well balanced between equipment and technology developers and end users many having a large share in the market they operate in. 4 countries (incl. less favoured) and 5 innovative expanding SMEs are included.
