T80 Radiation Hard Sensor



The T80 is a radiation resistant Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) available in a wide range of optical specifications. Naturally packaged directly in bare fiber, these sensors are ultra-small and are designed for use in tight spaces and with minimal intrusion.

The T80 optical sensor consists of a Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) sensing element embedded in single mode polyimide coated fiber. The sensor yields excellent wavelength to temperature and wavelength to strain linearity. Its sub-millisecond response time also makes it useful for industrial process control in nuclear energy plants, medical applications, and other radiation environments.

The T80 FBG is designed to make handling and installation fast, easy and intuitive. It delivers the many advantages inherent to all FBG based sensors. Equally sensitive to most traditional strain and temperature sensors but immune to EMI.

The FBG specifications listed herein represent the most popular configuration. Many optical and physical variations are available. Optional packaging into calibrated strain and temperature sensors.
