Laser light sensors that see through containers

Raman scattering has been used as a powerful 'fingerprinting' technique for more than 80 years, and is widely used by security and law enforcement for detecting hazardous threats. To better safeguard the community, QUT has developed a unique eye -safe laser Raman sensing system for detecting threats, that works at distance from a target (> 10 m) and operates in real time. Increasingly however, threats are being concealed in order to avoid detection. This project will investigate what range of …

Separating nonlinear optical effects in optical limiters

Optical limiting uses a medium’s nonlinear response to allow light at low intensities to be transmitted, but restricts transmission at high intensities so as to safeguard sensitive detectors including the eye. A popular nonlinear process used in optical limiters is two photon absorption where two high intensity light photons are simultaneously absorbed thereby reducing the light transmission through the medium. Unfortunately, in gold nanoparticle optical limiters a second nonlinear process can arise – saturated absorption which leads to an increase …

Aggressive lane change and cornering detection in the connected vehicle environment

BackgroundSoon, vehicles equipped with Cooperative Vehicle Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) will be on Australian roads. C-ITS will enable several safety functions (use cases) which are expected to improve road safety. After-market products C-ITS based has the advantage of being a feasible solution for existing vehicles with outdated technologies, which might be the origin of the road safety problems. Moreover, C-ITS data enables real-time evaluation of driver behaviour which can be used in several applications such as driver assistance and early …
