Measuring Microstrain

The vision of Mi6Sense is to measure structural deformation, from deep within a building, over the building’s entire lifetime. However, structural changes occur slowly over time, which creates a need for accurate and precise strain measurements, over very small length scales.

We have recently demonstrated the ability to measure micrometer displacements using low frequency magnetic fields. Furthermore, we are advancing our experimental setup to conduct proof of concept for 3-D strain measurements. Stay tuned!
