Paper Abstract

A high-temperature sapphire strain gage based on the in-line extrinsic fiber- optic Fizeau interferometer was used to measure strain imparted by a 4000 lb compressive load applied at a temperature of 1100 degree(s)C. Experimental strain sensitivities on the order of 1 (mu) (epsilon) were obtained.
