Data recorded by Large Fiber-Optic Seismograph was presented in the 27th International Conference on Optical Fiber Sensors (OFS 2022) in Alexandria, Virginia, USA, 29 August – 2 September 2022.
The International Conference on Optical Fiber Sensors was established in 1983 and it is acknowledged as the world’s leading conference on all topics related to photonic sensing technologies. We presented two papers: “Large Fiber-Optic Seismograph detecting the rotation rate caused by natural factors as well as mining activities” as an oral presentation as well as “Towards uniformity of rotational events recording – common test engaging more than 40 sensors including a wide number of fiber-optic rotational seismometers” as a poster presentation. Presentations underlined the rapid development of rotational seismology. We provide appropriate systems for this field based on the optical fibre Sagnac interferometer. The data recorded by the system FOS5-04 confirms its capability to detect changes in Earth’s rotation rate associated with diurnal polar motion, as well as diurnal and semidiurnal tides.
To further expand the functionalities of the presented large fiber-optic seismograph, we plan to construct the next generation of FOS with three perpendicular axes. The ultimate goal is to achieve full six-degree-of-freedom ground-motion data.
The pending FOSREM project new technology will be presented and explained in 2022 during 30th International Defence Industry Exhibition MSPO. We show our FOS6 project, especially in future defence applications. You can get information about the project and possible applications at the stand (B-23) of the Polish Space Agency (POLSA).
FOSREM team replaced the previous FOS1 sensor with the new FOS5LL with a 15 km long fiber loop. The old one was working since July 2017 and give us a lot of data. The new FOS5LL (Long Loop) is ten times more accurate, has a long 15000 m fiber optic loop and 1.5 m diameter. It’s working in a closed-loop configuration with 1310nm light.
FOSREM team is doing a part of the active seismic experiment. All groups installed above 40 sensors and sensors matrix. FOSREM installed four fibre optics sensors – two FOS3 and two FOS5. See our devices installed in the field.
