Sensors for Sterilisation Technologies

Sensors for Sterilisation Technologies

As health and safety issues become increasingly more important new technologies are being developed for the sterilisation of food, water, air and medical waste among others. Some of these technologies include UV, Gamma, X-Ray and Ozone. Optical fibres are very well suited for this task due to their small size & weight, immunity from electromagnetic interference, electrical isolation and chemical passivity. The Centre has developed sensors based on optical fibres for each of these sterilisation technologies.
