Paper Abstract

Two optical fiber pressure sensor techniques are applied to the measurement of the distributed pressure of an O-ring. These sensors are polarimetrically and interferometrically based. Experimental results are presented for measuring the pressure exerted on an O-ring placed in a vacuum chamber and are compared with analytical results. Resolution and dynamic range of the fiber sensors are discussed.
