Development of a Nano-Plasmonic Fiber Optic Sensing Platform for Battery Monitoring

Reference number 2018-01539
Funding from Vinnova SEK 1 701 200
Project duration September 2018 - November 2019
Status Ongoing
Venture The strategic innovation programme Electronic Components and Systems:
Call Electronic components and systems. Research and innovation projects 2018.

Purpose and goal

To design, develop and evaluate a robust and efficient sensor system based on nanoplasmonic detection on fiber optic probes, at a low cost. At the end of the project, a ready-made portable demonstrator is expected to be delivered that meets the industry´s demand for performance and cost.

Expected results and effects

For a successful project, this will significantly increase the production of commercial NPS sensors for battery storage. The new optical fiber detection solutions designed in this project will also increase the competence of RISE Acreo and Insplorion, as well as helping to establish Sweden as a key supplier of advanced energy storage solutions and sensor systems.

Planned approach and implementation

The project is divided into four work packages: 1. Functionalization of nanosensors - optimize the shape and size of the structure 2. Data analysis - examine options for signal processing with cheaper components 3. Optical coupling - simulate, build and test proposed sensor systems 4. Market and IPR survey - Based on the above packages, protect the rights to use the sensor systems, primarily as a battery sensor.
