Paper Abstract

Test results from reflection-based fiber optical sensors are presented, and several examples of reflective sensor applications are discussed. Reflection sensing techniques can be used to measure the displacement of suspended mirrors for proximity and motion sensing. In addition, reflections can be used to gauge the surface finish of machined parts and accurately determine the size and shape of components in automated manufacturing applications.
