Paper Abstract

Fiber optic sensors used in smart structure applications currently use commercially available optical fibers manufactured for communications purposes. Typical core/cladding sizes are on the order of 9/125 ?m for single mode fibers and 50/125 or 100/140 ?m for multimode fibers. These fiber sizes cannot be considered to be unobtrusive when embedded in graphite-epoxy composites where the graphite fiber sizes are on the order of 10?m.1
