Paper Abstract

Optical fiber grating-based sensors are proposed and demonstrated for the detection of corrosion. Two techniques are employed to indirectly monitor corrosion: (1) measuring the corrosion-induced decrease in the residual strain of a metal-coated optical fiber short period grating sensor and (2) monitoring corrosion-induced changes in the dimension of a metal- coated, long-period grating sensor.
