A micro components-assembled spectrometer sensor system for on-line oil quality analysis.

Objective

The proposed project is aimed to the design and fabrication of two 'in-line' sensors to characterize the mid-infrared and visible response of different oils which integrate a diffraction grating of great accuracy and a microdetector, sensing "almost-punctual" intensities, based on micro fabrication processes. These sensors are expected to be inserted in current working machines (compressors) to jointly monitor a complete range of oil characteristics that can identify any kind of degradation or contamination that could affect lubricant (and hence machine). The consecution of this purpose would imply a great advance in the development and production of "in-line" sensors, which are increasingly demanded by industry and can be easily commercialised. This project covers TRA 1.5, in the activity b: Integration in products of advanced micro-components.
