The FOSREM team of scientists (Jaroszewicz L, Krajewski Z, Kowalski J.) participated in the 3rd International Workshop on Rotational Seismology (3IWGoRS) in Christchurch, New Zealand. This workshop was organized by the University of Canterbury in Christchurch.
Professor Leszek Jaroszewicz showed a presentation on “Fiber Optics System for Rotational Events&Phenomena Monitoring”. Zbigniew Krajewski and Jerzy Kowalski showed an infographic of the technical implementations of FOSREM rotational sensors.
The start of FOSREM project began in Agust 2011. The Military University od Technology and m-Soft Sp. z o. o. signed an consortium agreement. The goal of the consortium is to develop a supersensitive rotational motion sensors.
We outline the development and the application in a field test of the Autonomous Fibre-Optic Rotational Seismograph (AFORS), which utilizes the Sagnac effect for a direct measurement of the seismic-origin rotations of the ground. The main advantage of AFORS is its complete insensitivity to linear motions, as well as a direct measurement of rotational components emitted during seismic events.
