University of Technology Photonics Technologies Application and Research Center (FOTAM) TUBITAK Teydeb-1505 University-Industry Cooperation Project

Inclusive of R&D activities hold in our university’s Photonics Technology Application and Research Center (PTARC), “High Speed Colour and Diameter Measurement System Integrated to Cable Production Line” named TÜBİTAK TEYDEB 1505 project, primarily prepared for use in cable production lines of NURSAN Cable Equipment located in same province, has been considered worthy to support by TÜBİTAK.

The application has been made as the collaboration of NURSAN Cable Equipment Ind. And Tra. Inc. , as customer organisation, and Dumlupınar Photonics Technology Application and Research Center (PTARC) and will be executed by Prof. Dr. Ahmet Altuncu (Associate in Electrical and Electronical Engineering Department & Manager of PTARC). Assoc. Prof. Doğan Aydın (The Head of Computer Engineering Department), Assoc. Prof. İsmet Çelik (Associate in Mechanical Engineering Department), and Res. Asst. Dr. Fırat Ertaç Durak will be assist as researchers. The project, which lasts 23 months in total, will also be employed as a scholarship student in two Electrical and Electronics Engineering graduate students.

At the end of the project, it is aimed to develop a photonic based sensor and measurement system to enable a precise measurement system which will have an ability to take measurements in real time cable insulation colour, diameter, and deformations in high speed that can be integrated to primarily for customer organisation of the project NURSAN Cable Equipment Ind. And Tra. Inc., as well as domestic and international cable producers’ production lines, production of the prototype, and performing field tests. The project will also have a contribution in development of the new technologies of production and sensors inclusive of the signed University – Industry Collaboration contract agreement with Nursan Cable Equipment Ind. And Tra. Inc., in structure of PTARC.
