How Fiber-Optic Sensing and New Materials Could Reduce the Cost of Floating Offshore Wind

Thursday, June 1, 2023 - 12:23 in Physics & Chemistry

In this Q&A, Berkeley Lab's Yuxin Wu discusses how scientists are developing sensing technologies that could be installed on floating offshore structures. This would allow the structures to self-monitor damaging conditions that could lead to costly repairs, and could also gauge impacts to marine mammals.
