Paper Abstract

Fibre optic hydrophones have been under development for twenty years, and have attained similar performance to the more conventional piezoelectric based transducer. However, the recent development of fibre Bragg grating (FBG) sensors makes possible an alternative approach to optical hydrophones, which offers the advantages of small sensor size and very simple manufacture
