Phase Sensors  — Developing Pressure Sensors for Hostile, High Temperature, High Shock Environments

About Us

Phase Sensors is a team of exceptionally skilled developers that tackle advanced sensor challenges. We specialize in measurements within hostile high temperature, high pressure, and high shock environments. We have deployed a variety of sensors for oil well monitoring, oil well drilling, refinery process monitoring, as well as signal processing marine engine and gearbox monitoring. We bring unique expertise to sensor development with our strong backgrounds in mathematics, electromagnetic modelling, signal processing, electrochemistry, materials design, and microfabrication. Our passion and artistic spirit are expressed through our technical designs, manufactured sensors, and successful deployments.

95% Alberta Sourced

Canadian National Institute of Nanotechnology and U of A nanoFab

Our background in Nanotechnology and Materials Science enables us to tackle mircofabrication challenges and solve problems with a scientific methodology. We understand the basic science behind the performance of our sensor and routinely seek out world experts to help make our products the best. We have direct access to the Canadian National Institute of Nanotechnology and the University of Alberta nanoFab.

Meet the Team at Phase Sensors!

The core development team at Phase Sensors consists of a PhD materials scientist with a background in hostile environment micro sensors; a firmware developer with 15 years of experience coding for low-level hardware (firmware, bare-metal BIOS, drivers); an electrical developer with 40 years of circuit design experience working at Ratheon, SPAR Aerospace, and the National Institute for Nanotechnology; and a hardware developer with experience in ultra-sensitive fluid properties analysis. We rapidly develop complicated sensing systems from designing the sensor element, building the data acquisition platform, to designing the real-time web interface.
