Paper Abstract

There is an increasing demand for sensors that includes military, homeland security, industrial process, civil structures, transportation and biomedical over wide range of applications. As a result, biophotonic and fiber optic sensing systems can play a key role in meeting many of these needs. Specifically, fiber optic sensors have the potential to measure physical parameters such as movement (strain), acceleration, rotation, pressure, temperature and flow. Biophotonic technology expands the sensing concepts to include the detection of chemical and biological agents (toxins) as well as monitor biological processes.
