Paper Abstract

Linear fiber optic long stroke displacement transducers would find many applications in process control, especially because of their immunity to electromagnetic interference, but so far no practical solutions have come up. In order to develop a better understanding of the underlying problems, a top down evaluation of published sensor ideas was carried out, followed by an experimental study of some key aspects of three different concepts. The well known problems in qualifying fiber optic sensors for the field were encountered once again.
