The joint-type transducer is an extrinsic optical fiber-based displacement/force transducer.
Value accounting for the Joint-type transducer project
- Improve the mirror on the lever part of the joint-type transducer. See Optical fiber coating project.
- Fully characterize transducers: sensitivity, stiffness, vibration frequency, thermal effects, mechanical strength, lifetime, etc.
- Produce the first scientific data with this transducer.
- Build the fiber coating device,
see Optical fiber coating project.
- Build a tabletop semi-automated manufacturing device to assemble our transducers.
- Design and build or acquire testing and quality control devices as well as calibration devices.
- Make the first scientific-grade batch of transducers
- Test the transducers
- Develop manufacturing capacity

Revenue will be generated by selling transducers. Transducers are consumables, they have a finite life-time and they need to be replaced from time to time. Transducers are used in the Mosquito, and other systems that integrate the Mosquito.
- All members involved in design and prototyping of the transducer will be compensated from the income generated by sales, in proportion to their involvement. Any future improvement of the joint-type transducer will be accounted for.
- Members taking part in designing and building the semi-automated manufacturing device to assemble our transducers will also have a cut from the revenue generated by every transducer sold.
- Members involved in the manufacturing process will get compensated a certain parentage, for every batch of transducers sold.
