Measuring By Light

MBL

The 5th edition of Measuring By Light joins the 5th edition op OPTIMESS in a unique lustrum event.

The gathering will provide a platform where delegates of both Industry and Academia discuss novel measurement techniques and solutions, bridging requirements for both.

We cordially invite you to join us in a 3 day international conference on optical measurement techniques and their applications in both industrial and academic research. First day of the conference is devoted to workshops and demonstrations, on 2nd and 3rd day invited and free contributions will cover a broad spectrum of techniques and applications.We cordially invite you to join us in a 3 day international conference on optical measurement techniques and their applications in both industrial and academic research.

Silicon photonics enabled Laser Doppler Vibrometry and its application in cardiovascular medicine

Silicon photonics enables the miniaturization and cost down-scaling of LDV devices, such that they can be widely used in medical practice. In this presentation efforts towards the design, construction and testing of such devices will be eported, along with results from several clinical feasibility studies, using these devices, with focus on pulse wave velocity, stenosis and heart dyssynchrony. These results were obtained in the Horizon2020 CARDIS project (2015-2019), executed by Medtronic, IMEC and partners.

Conference programme

On Thursday the participants are invited to participate to the conference dinner.

Workshops

On Thursday the participants are invited to participate to the conference dinner.

1) Vibration measurements of microstructures

Surface topography and dynamic motion analysis and visualization are key to testing and developing microstructures such as MEMS devices (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems). They are indispensable for validating FE calculations, determining cross-talk effects and measuring surface deformation.

workshop1

2) Non-destructive testing of composite materials

Scanning laser vibrometry measurements are used to detect different types of damages in CFRP materials. This non-contact NDT technique allows to localize small barely visible defects.

workshop2

3) Vibration measurements of rotors

In this workshop we show how non-contact laser based vibration measurements can be used for rotor balancing. We also address torsional vibration measurements. These can be used to detect faults in a rotating machine.

workshop3

4) FEM model updating using optical vibration measurements

In automotive industry digital twins are used during the design process. For the verification of these numerical models vibration measurements are needed. In this workshop we illustrate how optical vibration measurements can be used to tune numerical models.

workshop4

5) Characterization of asphalt pavement material properties

In this demo we show how optical fibre sensors can be used to determine the elastic properties of a layered pavement.

workshop5

6) Imaging techniques for quality control and non-destructive testing

Imaging technique like hyperspectral imaging and infrared thermography provide a powerful tool to detect damage in a product or a structure. In this interactive demo we demonstrate the use of imaging technique for corrosion detection, oil spillage and leak detection.

workshop6

7) High-speed surface shape measurement

Fringe projection techniques provide a means to measure the surface topography of an object. In this demo we illustrate how GPU processing can be used to enable real-time deformation measurements of membranes, plate-like structures, etc.Fringe projection techniques provide a means to measure the surface topography of an object.

Abstract submission

Authors are invited to submit abstract(s) using this template and send it to Mbl-optimess2019@uantwerpen.be.

KonneXXions is the proud co-organizer of this event and using the code :
KonneXXions-OPTIMBL19.

you can still register at 150 Eur instead of 300 Eur or 200 Eur including conference dinner. Using this code you can still submit your abstract untill July 15th.

Abstracts should contain sufficient detail on the techniques used and the results which will be shown.

You will receive a confirmation when the abstract has been received. Please contact the conference secretariat if you did not receive confirmation within 10 working days.

Submission implies the intent of at least one author to register, attend the symposium and present the paper (either 20 minutes oral presentation or in poster format). Contributions will only be finally accepted after registration and payment of the conference fee.

Abstract submission will be closed on 4th August 2019 (extended deadline)

The abstract will be reviewed, and you will be notified of acceptance before 4th August 2019.

We will not publish full papers, because our primary goal is to facilitate networking between academia and industria. The presentations of the conference will be shared with the participants after the event.

In addition, we will collect papers on "full-field measurement techniques for damage assessment" in a special issue of the journal Sensors (IF=2.475). More information can be found here.
