Bookham Technology to manage $1.3 million auto sensor project

Nov. 1, 1995
The British Department of Trade and Industry and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council have designated Bookham Technology Ltd. (Chilton, England) as program coordinator of a two-year, $1.3 million project to develop fiberoptic temperature and pressure sensors for automotive engine applications. The cooperative effort involves Bookham, the Ford Motor Company (Basildon, England), pressure-transducer manufacturer Druck Ltd. (Groby, England), and the Central Microstructure Facility

Bookham Technology to manage $1.3 million auto sensor project

The British Department of Trade and Industry and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council have designated Bookham Technology Ltd. (Chilton, England) as program coordinator of a two-year, $1.3 million project to develop fiberoptic temperature and pressure sensors for automotive engine applications. The cooperative effort involves Bookham, the Ford Motor Company (Basildon, England), pressure-transducer manufacturer Druck Ltd. (Groby, England), and the Central Microstructure Facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (Chilton, England), a government

facility. Bookham?s portion of the grant is roughly $650,000. The goal is to produce a rugged system suited to high-volume, low-cost production. Integral to the development effort will be Bookham?s Active Silicon Integrated Optical Circuits technology, which combines active and passive integrated optical elements with integral optical-fiber attachment and diode-laser, edge-emitting light-emitting diode, and photodiode hybridization.
