Project Details

Description

THERAD research aims at creating a new fire detection paradigm and measurement technology by combining gradient heat flux sensors with novel spectrally selective coatings into robust, low-weight and low-cost thermal radiation sensors. First we will design the coating systems by computational techniques. We will investigate the suitability of two manufacturing techniques for manufacturing the micro- and nanoparticle inclusions in thin coating layers to implement infrared bandpass filters. Coated sensors will be optimized and calibrated for the use in flame detection and measurement problems, and validated using experimental and computational methods.
