Paper Abstract

Over the past decades, discrete or distributed Fiber Optic Sensing (FOS) applications have seen an increased acceptance in many areas. High level optical and mechanical reliability of optical fiber is necessary to guarantee reliable performance of FOS. In this paper, we review recent research and development activities on new specialty fibers. The main approaches to enhancing fiber attributes include new refractive index profile design and fiber coating modification.
