Paper Abstract

The paper describes the necessity and feasibility of digitizing output signal from the fiber-optic sensors (FOS), and how to realize the digital optics for FOS with intensity modulation. A method of obtaining information by using special optical fibers is described. The auto-adaptive optics technology is utilized to derive fiducial information. In order to increase computational flexibility, optical technology is used in place of several electronic technologies.
