Paper Abstract

Of the various types of fiber optic sensors, the polarimetric sensors provides reliability greater than intensity sensors and are more rugged than interferometric sensors. Thus from an engineering standpoint, they would be best suited for strain measurement and damage detection in smart composite materials. This article looks at the capabilities of the polarimetric strain sensor and demonstrates some of its potential for on-line monitoring in smart structure application.
