Photonics Skins for Optical Sensing

PHOSFOS aims at developing a flexible and stretchable foil that integrates optical sensing elements and that if necessary, appropriate and relevant to the application, can include optical and electrical powering as well as onboard signal processing and wireless communications. This skin can be wrapped around, embedded in, attached and anchored to irregularly shaped and/or moving objects or bodies and will allow quasi-distributed sensing of mechanical quantities such as deformation, pressure, stress or strain.
