Active Projects

   CIREBI

CIREBI (“Componenti Intelligenti con Reticoli di Bragg Integrati") is a POR CREO FESR 2014-2020 research project funded by theTuscany Region. Aim of the project is the development of two "smart" components equipped with FBG based sensors network for the continous real time monitoring of deformations and temperature. The two components will be: 1) a standard Eurocard PCB electronic board with FBGs embedded for the temperaure monitoring; 2) a fiber reinforced polymer composites cylinder, part of a low pressure anechoic chamber, equipped with an FBGs network for the monitoring of the deformations during the creation of the vacuum.
