Paper Abstract

In recent years many exciting developments have taken place in the area of smart structures which are designed to react to their environment by the use of integrated sensors and actuators. At the same time, important advances in lasers, fiber optics, semiconductor optoelectronics, optical and thermal imaging, and optical processing have made possible the application of optical methods in many novel ways. Optical techniques and technologies have thus a major role to play in the development of smart sensors and structures. The purpose of this paper is to present a review of some recent developments in this direction.
