Paper Abstract

Integrating fiber optic sensors offer the potential to monitor large spatial extents due to their geometric flexibility. To date, this potential has not been widely exploited. By increasing the length of an integrating fiber optic sensor, its gain and/or gauge length can be increased. In addition, by configuring the sensor to a spatial distribution ofsome parameter ofinlerest, the antenna gain ofthe sensor will provide selectivityfor that particular distribution. in this paper, the results of an experiment demonstrating these properties of integrating fiber optic sensors are presented.
