Paper Abstract

A fiber-optic strain rosette is embedded in Kevlar/epoxy. The individual arms of the rosette are fiber Fabry-Perot interferometers operated in reflection-mode with gauge (i.e., cavity) lengths of approximately 5 mm. Procedures for manufacturing the cavities, and bending the fibers, to form a strain rosette are described. Experimental results showing 2D interlaminar strain-tensor measurement are presented. The sensor is also tested as a surface adhered device.
