Paper Abstract

Optical fiber sensors, because of their small size, low weight, extremely high information carrying capability, immunity to electromagnetic interference, and large operational temperature range, provide numerous advantages over conventional electrically based sensors. Fiber-based sensors have found numerous applications in industry for process control, and more recently for monitoring the health of advanced civil structures. This paper presents preliminary results from optical fiber sensor designs for monitoring acceleration and magnetic field.
