LD (laser) Mosquito project

Subscribe to changes of project pages

If you like what you see, don't just copy our technology, join SENSORICA. It is in your best interest! Here's why


Short-term goals

  • Revisit the electronics for the SS4 Mosquito
  • Integrate DAQ into the new electronics
  • Test the OzOptics photonics (inquire about the problem with the laser)
  • Design onboard signals conditioning

Long-term goals

Package the SS4 Mosquito


  • Stabilize Frederics improved driver
  • Include the DAQ into the electronics
  • Design and include signals conditioning
  • Stabilize potonics


[This list will be replaced with a UI/script which will automatically pull info from the activity log, and display members
involved and their relative contribution. See infrastructure activity cluster for more on infrastructure development.]  


See SENSORICA Business Model and Contribution Accounting System.

Skills and resources needed

Electrical engineers to improve the Mosquito electronics
Mechanical engineers to package the Mosquito
Photonics improve the optical layout and optical fiber transducer sensitivity. 

You can also contribute financially to reduce the burden on materials. Contact us through our mailing list if you want to take initiative.

  • Mosquito SS4 prototype under way New parts have been ordered from OZ Optics for a new Mosquito design. The goal is to reduce feedback into the laser, which renders the laser unstable. For more on the problem open this document. Francois, Tibi and Jonathan have been very instrumental in this new effort.  Optical Layout open parts info documentopen parts photosElectronics The electronics for this new Mosquito has been redesigned to include a reference signal. A first design has been completed and and a first prototype has been built. It is currently being tested. Frederic D. is working on it - see below. We have discussed 2 options: use the monitor PD in the LD split the laser output in 2, and use a small ...
