Paper Abstract

The unique features of fibre optic sensors have sparked wide spread interest in applications that provide new sensor capabilities or offer cost or performance benefits over existing sensors. Fibre optic sensors are small, lightweight, electrically passive and immune to electromagnetic interference, making them attractive for industrial, marine, military and medical applications. The oceans provide a unique arena where many of the attributes of optical sensing can be and are being applied today. However, the oceans also present many challenges in bringing fibre optic sensing to an especially hostile environment.
