Paper Abstract

This paper describes a feasibility study into developing an intensity-based corrosive environment sensor. The sensor concept takes advantage of the reduced reflectivity that accompanies the development of aluminum oxide on thin film aluminum mirrors deposited on to cleaved optical fiber ends. The test results indicate that this technique merits further investigation.
