About us

SHUTE is a spin-out company from the Department of Photonics Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark.

 

We develop a novel polymer optical fiber sensor system, which enables real-time monitoring of strain, humidity and temperature in points along an optical fiber.

Compared to existing solutions, our sensors are:

 

  • Very flexible and easy to embed in hard or soft materials
  • 30 times more sensitive to strain than silica fiber sensors and
  • 20 times more sensitive to stress
  • Stretchable – up to 6% elongation
  • Humidity sensitive
  • Biocompatible

Technology

We develop a novel optical fiber sensor system, which enables real-time monitoring of strain, humidity and temperature in points along an optical fiber.

SHUTE’s patented technology is based on a micro-structured Polymer Optical Fiber (POF) inscribed with Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBGs). FBG are a well-known technology that functions as sensor points along the POF.
