B-SENS is a Belgian company specialized in the development of OEM sensors based on the fiber Bragg grating technology. Its unique expertise lies in the design, realization and implementation of physical and (bio)chemical sensors. These sensors are provided to customers to ensure the safety of goods and people.
Optical fiber gratings yield miniaturized sensors that can be distributed, remotely monitored or inserted into small spaces, allowing their use in numerous fields. Their association with a specific sensitive layer reveals their most ground-breaking nature, opening the way to in situ (bio)chemical and physical sensing and offering great, perhaps even revolutionary, new capabilities of sensors deployment. In this configuration, the grating is a generic and adaptive device while the sensitive layer brings the specificity.
The B-SENS team possesses an exclusive know-how in physical and (bio)chemical sensors based on fibre Bragg gratings and functional coatings. Based on your specifications, B-SENS is the right partner for advanced sensors development and offers you:
B-SENS makes use of high level and up-to-date facilities made available by the University of Mons and the Materia Nova Research Center. B-SENS benefits from 15+ year expertise in the field of fiber Bragg gratings developed through continuous research and development projects. Three production lines are available in a class 10,000 clean room for Bragg grating manufacturing in silica and polymer optical fibers.
B-SENS and its co-workers evaluate with you the best strategy to develop your project while ensuring optimal research, development costs and quality. This effort goes in line with the company statement and is supported by a continuous R&D process.
The B-SENS co-workers hold a PhD degree in (applied) science and are the co-inventors of several patented optical fiber sensor configurations. These specialists are privileged contacts to answer your needs in that domain. Their numerous collaborations with renown companies both in Belgium and internationally give them a tight expertise, materialized by a rapid understanding of your requirements.
