Paper Abstract

Techniques are reviewed whereby optical fibers may be used to measure various physical parameters. Advantages and disadvantages of fiber-optic sensing are discussed. In particular, phase-modulated devices for the measurement of acceleration, rotation, acoustics, pressure, temperature, electric current, and magnetic fields are emphasized. Areas of application to be considered include medical, military, geophysical and industrial control.
