Paper Abstract

The presented research addresses the interfacial behavior of polyimide-coated optical fiber sensors embedded in neat resin matrices and their use in gaining information for strain sensing applications. The interfacial shear strengths of glass fiber/coating/resin systems were examined via a single fiber pull-out test. The optical fiber strain sensor was developed in-house employing polyimide-coated, polarization-maintaining optical fiber and was characterized for sensitivity to strain and other strain related phenomena. Optical fiber strain experiments are compared to an established data base of single fiber pull-out test results. Initial experimental comparisons are presented.
