Paper Abstract

This article is a progress report on the efforts of the applied optics group of Foster-Miller to develop methods of analog optical processing and nonlinear optical techniques to derive a reliable, simple and instantaneous measurement device for df. In this paper we discuss algorithms suitable for optical implementation, some of our experiments to test various approaches, and preliminary evaluations of various potential applications to monitoring processes such as two-phase hydrodynamic flow, polymer film manufacture, and microparticle impact damage in space vehicles. Also we discuss some possible extensions of the optical fractal sensor approach to temporal data.
