    Deliverable: Publication, Domain: Any R&D, Source: SENSORICA

    Whenever you are doing something and don't get to the wanted/expected result for various reasons, you can create a Lesson as output of your process.
    It is highly recromanded to write a short text about why things didn't work as expected. This short description is the lesson you take and share with the community.
    Lessons are cited into other processes, i.e. they are attached to value streams, through what we call "solidarity mechanisms". This is recognizing that failure is part of the Design, R&D and Engineering processes and should not be punished.
    Rewarding failure opens the door to abuse. Therefore, the citation of failures, as a process, should include all the participants in the process.

  • Part Optical - Circulator
    Parent: Part Optical
    Domain: Optical, Material Item: Part/Component/Product, Source: purchased OR partner

    An optical circulator is a special fiber-optic component that can be used to separate optical signals that travel in opposite directions in an optical fiber, analogous to the operation of an electronic circulator. An optical circulator is a three-port device designed such that light entering any port exits from the next. This means that if light enters port 1 it is emitted from port 2, but if some of the emitted light is reflected back to the circulator, it does not come out of port 1, but instead exits from port 3. Circulators can be used to achieve bi-directional transmission over a single fiber. Because of its high isolation of the input and reflected optical powers and its low insertion loss, optical circulators are widely used in advanced communication systems and fiber-optic sensor applications.
    Optical circulators are non-reciprocal optics, which means that changes in the properties of light passing through the device are not reversed when the light passes through in the opposite direction. This can only happen when the symmetry of the system is broken, for example by an external magnetic field. A Faraday rotator is another example of a non-reciprocal optical device.

    The use of this sensor is to measure drip. Dripping must happen at a precise location. Should be able to measure any liquid dripping. Dripping occurs from a precise location, through a 1 cm2 area. Dripping might occur from hot objects, and low dripping rates might not be visible, due to evaporation (I suppose we can define a no-dripping which includes this eventuality without having to measure the fluid loss to evaporation, just based on some assumptions, because temperature sensors are also installed on the same device).
    The sensor must be small format, to fit within an enclosed space of a few cm3.
    The sensor is used in an environment with potentially high EM (electromagnetic) noise.
