09 December 2013 Prysmian and ICFO Team Up

Partnership agreement between ICFO and Prysmian Group to develop optical sensors ICFO has signed an industrial agreement with Prysmian Group, world leader in energy and telecom cables and system industry, to carry out a project entitled Powersense, which aims to develop photonic sensors for their use in the transmission and conversion of energy transport lines.

The Optoelectronics group led by ICREA Professor at ICFO Valerio Pruneri will develop novel sensor architectures for this project which will contribute to measurements without incurring in electrical breakdowns thanks to the all-optical nature of the sensors.
