Paper Abstract

Embedded fiber optic sensors into composites have been studied for a long time, but embedding a fiber sensor into metallic structure is beginning to study. Recently, this has raised interest due to embedded FBG in the metallic structure provide capabilities for controlling parameters of the structural health status and also information about their own process of deterioration. In this paper we study three different techniques for coating a FBG sensor: physical vapour deposition (PVD), electroless deposition and electroplating. This paper describes the experimental procedure for coating metallic fiber optic sensors and the optical characterization.
