In March of 2023, Lumoscribe partners with Bar-Ilan University, Frederick University, Cyprus Energy Regulatory Authority, Cyprus Computer Society – CCS, EAC (Electricity Authority Cyprus), Algolysis Ltd, and Resoloupe Ltd for the Intelligent Light Sensing for Next Generation Smart Grids (LightSense) project.
As Project Coordinators and Principal Investigators of the LUMiOS project (from October of 2019 until February 2022), Lumoscribe developed monolithic high-efficiency fiber lasers for operation in the mid-infrared wavelength range and particularly at 3.5 μm.
Significant amount of public funds in Cyprus are allocated for civil infrastructure construction and maintenance. As the technology progresses, coupled with the need to increase the general safety of structures and citizens, the civil infrastructures require to become “smart” by incorporating sensing technologies.
Uniform, in-core FBGs have shown high sensitivity to environmental parameters, such as temperature and strain. However, their location in the fibre core is too far from the cladding/air interface to interact and detect the presence and properties of materials surrounding the optical fibre.
This research project presents the creation of a research and innovation center on photonics and advanced sensors in which three main research lines will be developed.
Development of polymer optical fibers with new materials using environmental friendly and low cost techniques (CNPq)
This Research Project aims at the development of new polymer optical fibers through different low cost and ecologically correct techniques. These techniques include the recycling of materials present in the daily lives of the general population as an alternative to reducing solid waste, especially electronic waste.
