Paper Abstract

Currently, the applications of fiber optic sensors on the automobile industry are gaining importance due to their potential for implementation in data acquisition and signal transmission. This paper covers from quantum mechanics, the photon counting in optical fibers using coherent states and generalized intelligent states, described by hyper-geometric functions and Bessel functions. Different fiber optic configurations will be showed, in order to show some representative factors that influence the probability of coherent and intelligent photons detected and transmitted by optical fibers. Finally, from the automotive industry, some applications are presented, from which the quantum-optical approach here proposed makes sense.
