Ice proof Arctic article in Optical Review
April 30, 2020

An open access article was published about the atmospheric icing detection sensor ICEMET, which can be used to measure the present icing conditions for wind energy production and for other critical infrastructure such as high voltage transmission lines. The data produced by the sensor can be also used to improve the atmospheric icing forecasts. The online article can be accessed from the link below. Kaikkonen, V.A., Molkoselkä, E.O. & Mäkynen, A.J. A rotating holographic imager for stationar..
