Paper Abstract

Liquid level and pressure sensors have been developed using plastic optical fibers, which offer many advantages with respect to silica ones, such as large core dimension, high numerical aperture, easy handling, low cost and high flexibility. Low cost and compact opto-electronic circuits have been designed and realized to drive the proposed sensors. Sensor characteristics and performances have been experimentally measured and discussed.
