Optical Sensor Applications
Optical Sensors are widely used for Medical and Industrial Applications. Optical spectrum data can be used to detect the presence or absence of chemicals in a sample, as well as the concentration of any detected substances. Optical sensors can also be used to measure mechanical elements such as stress / strain, temperature, pressure or distance. Fiberguide’s fibers and our expertise in building customer assemblies helps our customers overcome challenges in these areas.
