Sentea has the ambition to become a market leader in fiber optic sensor interrogators leveraging the benefits of Silicon Photonics.
Fiber optic sensing allows for highly accurate and robust structural health monitoring solutions, predicting and preventing equipment failure and structural damage even in the most harsh environments. Furthermore fiber optic sensors can also be used to monitor and improve the operational efficiency of equipment and processes.
Thanks to the use of Silicon Photonics, wind farms, civil structures, heavy industry and transport will benefit from Sentea’s small and cost-effective fiber optic sensor interrogators.
Sentea is a spin-off of the joint Photonics Research Group of Ghent University and nano-technology research center imec. The Photonics Research Group has been working on Silicon Photonics based fiber optic sensor technology and interrogators since 2009.
A team of researchers from Ghent University together with seasoned managers, and supported by a consortium of leading Belgian high-tech investors, founded the company in 2018 to commercialize 10 years of research.
Our offices are located at the technology park in Zwijnaarde, the "Silicon Photonics Valley" of Flanders.
