Paper Abstract

This paper describes the overview of the past decade's progress of network sensing supported by the use of single mode fiber optics in which glass fiber material itself exhibits sensing function, comparing with conventional FBG/BOTDR techniques, and newly developed hetero-core techniques. The hetero-core fiber optic sensor has been highlighted in terms of the fabrication process, the sensing mechanism and characteristics, and a road map toward commercialization to the variety of industrial applications.
