Exploratory Award

Proposal number EXAW-1999-00929

AcronymSEN-SAW

Proposal titleDevelopment of strain and torque sensors based upon surface acoustic waves

technology

AbstractSurface acoustic waves (SAWs) occur at the interface of an elastic medium. The waves can

be used to detect physical parameters at the surface such as strain, torque, pressure and

temperature. The concept of SAW sensors has been proved at a scientific level but the

industrial applications are very limited indeed. The potential for SAW sensors as a

contact-less, low-cost and reliable sensor is enormous. This project will develop SAW

sensors capable to operate for many different applications such as brushless DC motors,

mixers for the food and chemical industry, electrical power tool, condition monitoring of

rotating machines and parts, etc. The project will be an excellent solution for industries

that at present cannot monitor their parts and/or processes due to lack of suitable sensors

and will generate important markets within Europe.
