The core technology which GEOPTEX applies is the Fibre Bragg Grating optical sensing technology, featuring several advantages over classical electrical sensor solutions. The basic sensing principle is illustrated in the video below, highlighting:

  • Fundamentals of fibre optics
  • Fibre Bragg Grating principle
  • Strain and temperature measurement principle
  • Mutliplexing principle

An illustration of a typical application using Fibre Bragg grating technology integrated in geotextiles or geogrid structures to monitor and detect geological settlementst is shown in the video below:
