Paper Abstract

This paper discusses several novel concepts being investigated in the Center for Fiberoptic Sensor Systems and Smart Structures at Florida Institute of Technology associated with fiberoptic sensors, actuators and processor technology, and efforts to integrate these components into distributed smart systems. Projects include: a polarimetric sensor with active phase tracking test set, a combination polarimetric/two mode sensor, an N-mode sensor with neural processor, damage assessment using embedded fiber-optic arrays and a neural processor, a pulsed interferometric sensor, neural network-processed polarimetric sensor signals, and optically-energized shape-memory alloy actuators.
