Prisma Photonics was invited to give a session on next-generation fiber sensing and its application in the 25th seminar on optical communications, hosted by the University of Ljubljana. As most sessions looked at optical fibers’ different communication aspects, our CEO, Dr. Eran Inbar’s presentation, show-cased another use case.
The presentation explained how Prisma Photonics uses the same, regular, telecom optical fibers to monitor and sense long-running infrastructures. Dr. Inbar focused specifically on overhead power transmission line monitoring. This use of fiber sensing could help immensely in cases like the 2018 ‘Camp Fire’ wildfire in California or regular monitoring, looking for faults. The presentation sheds more light on other use cases and displayed actual results. Dr. Inbar even had to deal with an exciting use case involving rats and their taste in cables 🐀.
