Paper Abstract

The work presented describes the development of a novel integrated optical sensor system for the simultaneous and online measurement of the colour and temperature of food as it cooks in a large-scale microwave and hybrid oven systems. The integrated probe contains two different sensor concepts, one to monitor temperature and based on Fibre Bragg Grating (FBG) technology and a second for meat quality, based on reflection spectroscopy in the visible wavelength range. The combination of the two sensors into a single probe requires a careful configuration of the sensor approaches in the creation of an integrated probe design.
