Smart structures

Optimized, lightweight materials in aerospace as well as infrastructure areas such as bridges and buildings should keep up more extreme environmental situations while being more energy efficient. In addition, life cycles of materials should be optimally exploited and ageing processes detected at an early stage. In order to assess the limits, Loptek offers intelligent fiber optic sensors. So, e.g. cable systems can report material fatigue or wind turbines icing hazards in a timely manner.
