Paper Abstract

We present recent progress in the development of optical fiber sensors for early detection of corrosion on aging metallic aircraft. Optical fiber sensing techniques being investigated include fiber optic Bragg grating strain sensor to monitor the mass reduction of metal `witness' capillary tubes and extrinsic Fabry-Perot interferometric strain gages to monitor pillowing in lap joints.
