Measuring Force During Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

November 17th, 2015|

When we move, muscles contract and produce force. Neuroimagingsolutions, LLC has developed a system to measure force within magnetic resonance imaging and magnetoencephalography environments.  Most force sensors available on the market are made with metal, and are not compatible with these environments.  A particularly useful procedure is to measure force during functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) or other types of neuroimaging studies, so that one can quantify and measure functional brain activity of humans.  This [...]

Oil Pipeline Geotechnical Risk Monitoring Using FBG Sensors

October 28th, 2015|

A challenge that buried oil and gas pipelines often face is their susceptibility to accumulated strain, bending and possible rupture effects from soil movements and other geohazards. One example of a pipeline network currently combatting this issue is Ecopetrol in Columbia. In the spring of 2013, a system composed of Micron Optics fiber Bragg grating (FBG) strain sensors and several sm125 Optical Sensing Interrogators was installed by Salazar Ferro Ingenieros in order to provide early [...]
