Paper Abstract

Progress in practical realizations of liquid crystalline optical fiber system for pressure monitoring is presented. This includes presentation of a compact prototype fiber optic liquid crystalline hydrostatic pressure sensor based on twisted nematic liquid crystalline cells operating in the Mauguin limit and also preliminary characteristics of the all-fiber liquid crystalline pressure sensor utilizing fibers in which liquid crystals are used as the fiber core. Potential areas of applications of the liquid crystalline fiber optic system are specially dedicated to pipe-lines, mining instrumentation, and process-control technologies.
