    Humidity sensors for agriculture.

    Unique fiber optic humidity sensors were also developed for the huge CMS experiment at CERN's Large Hadron Collider. "We use specially developed sensors in order to monitor the environment in the CMS tracking system, at the centre of the detector," explains Martin Gastal, FOSS4I project leader and member of the CMS collaboration at CERN. "Such sensors have the potential to be further developed to match the challenges of other applications, like irrigation. This project is illustrating how research in high energy physics, can produce technologies that can be applied to societal problems while stimulating technology transfer and local economic development."
