Nuclear Optical sensors for challenging environments

The nuclear industry offers some of the most challenging environments for sensor system. The environmental conditions faced during decommissioning activities can be met by innovative solutions developed in parallel industries. Oxsensis optical sensors, developed for harsh environments in the aerospace and power generation industries enable measurements at high temperatures and pressures in EMI immune radiation tolerant sensors.


Technology from our aerospace applications provides temperature, pressure and position sensors suitable for nuclear system instrumentation. This technology is particularly relevant because it is non-electrical by virtue of the passive (optical) sensor head.
