Novel manufacturing processes can enable efficient mass production of high value components and parts as well as innovative new product developments. Development of such manufacturing processes requires deep understanding of the processes and the requirements of the product application. Also, for reliable and affordable manufacturing solutions, innovative multi-scale, multi-functional, and multi-material processing technologies are required. In this presentation, sensing application at CO2 sequestration and storage sites is considered. At CO2 storage sites, an effective a sensor network is essential to establish a long-term and large-scale monitoring solution for any leakage. There are many challenges inherent to this sensing application, most notably: long transmission lengths; extreme physical and chemical condition; and the need for many widely-distributed measurements. To address these challenges and constraints, our approach is to develop fiber optic based sensing systems. Both subtractive and additive manufacturing technologies such as femtosecond laser machining and nanoparticle deposition have been considered to meet the fabrication requirements. Novel manufacturing processes and methodologies have been developed to generate multi-scale features and effects for fabrication of high performance fiber optic sensors more efficiently and are presented in this talk.
