A $25,000 grant was awarded on Oct 5th, 2012. The goal of this project is to design new optical fiber displacement/force transducers. See grant application - members only. See past funding.
Maksim runs a state-of-the-art photonics/optics lab at Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal, with very expensive and exotic equipment. Access to this lab represents a very important asset for SENSORICA.
Long-term targets: biochemical sensors.
