Optics11 provide a range of monitoring instruments and solutions. The I4G (top) offers low noise high frequency monitoring of up to 120 fibre optic FBG sensors at kHz frequencies. OptimAE is the unique-patented in the world optical acoustic emission system. Using interferometry as a measurement principle, OptimAE achieves state-of-the-art sensitivity while enabling AE measurements in harsh conditions. Optics11 fiber-optics acoustic emission sensors can sustain critical temperature, such as cryogenics. They are immune to electromagnetic interference, completely passive and robust.


Optics11 has developed a range of fibre-optic sensing systems for applications in condition monitoring, structural health monitoring, and non-destructive testing. Fiber optic sensors out perform electrical sensors in challenging operational environments, such as in strong electrical or magnetic fields, high radiation, extreme temperatures or in liquids. The unique expertise in interferometry, FBG interrogation and transducers design allowed the company to develop over the years the world’s broadest sensors portfolio in the fiber-optic market.

Optics11 has extensive experience with monitoring acoustic emission, temperature (including cryogenic), strain, acceleration, and corrosion. All Optics11 systems embrace innovative measurement techniques that allow to overcome most of the drawbacks and limitations of classic fiber-optic sensing systems such as limited bandwidth, limited sensitivity and bulky sensor size. The company is currently growing and expanding its market in multiple fields.
