Paper Abstract

The applications prospects of plastic fiber, as a kind of thin cladding optical fiber in fiber optic sensors are introduced. Several main points in the applications are discussed, such as light source photo-detectors coupling loss, and it is pointed out that there are both high and low limitations for liquid medium sensing. Finally, two intensity modulating sensors made of plastic optical fiber are described.
