Development, characterization and installation of optical sensors in concrete structures


Work description

Fabrication, characterization and installation of fibre optic based sensors to real time monitoring of stability and durability of small-scale models of concrete structures. These sensors based on different methodologies are coated with specific polymers, which undergo physicochemical changes that depend on the agents present in the medium. Following these changes spectral variations are detected through low-cost interrogation systems also developed in the tasks of this project.

Academic Qualifications

Master's degree in physics engineering or equivalent.

Minimum profile required

- Strong skills in optoelectronic systems.- Skills in software development of spectral analysis and control.- Microcontroller programming skills.- Practical experience.- Autonomy at work.
