Paper Abstract

Light power attenuation occurs in deformed fibre. We use this measure pressures applied into one or many fibres without any additional mechanical. Different configurations could be considered : - an elementary loop - a surface sensor woven with a single fibre - a surfacic sensor woven multiple fibres. So we obtain a flexible sensor insensitive to bending with and sensitive to pressure like a skin. The different configurations emerge on different applications - binary working (presence detector reconnaissance shape) - continuous working (pressure may- strain sensor).
