Paper Abstract

Ironically, many of the passive components used extensively in telecommunications systems today were developed originally for fiber optic sensor systems. While the commercial sensor applications have developed more slowly, the breadth and scope of such applications continue to push the design engineer to develop new components. These developments have included, for example, splitters using hard clad silica fiber for medical and environmental sensors, improved splitters using polarization preserving fiber for gyroscopes, and unique wavelength division multiplexers for medical sensors. This paper will review the state of the art of passive fiber optic components with particular emphasis on sensor applications.
