Paper Abstract

A novel technique for measuring several physical parameters suing a transparent, silicone- rubber optical fiber is described. A discussion of the physical and optical characteristics of the fiber is provided along with preliminary experimental results on various present and future sensor applications. These applications include fiber-optic sensors for detecting and measuring temperature, humidity/moisture, force, and static and dynamic pressure.
