Paper Abstract

In this paper a technique for integrating copper coated silica optical fibers into AS-4/PEEK composite for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is presented. The integration steps are described in detail. X-ray and microscopic images indicate a successfully integrated optical fiber which does not seem to affect the fiber/matrix distribution around it. Optical backscatter reflectometry shows losses of approximately 2dBm-1 along the integrated parts of the optical fiber due to temperature induced shrinkage of the composite.
