Paper Abstract

A generic class of fiber-optic sensors is evolving rapidly for applications requiring maximum sensitivity. Theoretical and practical performance levels of the Mach-Zehnder types of interferometric sensors will be reviewed. A number of optical and electronic detection/demodulation schemes are becoming available and will be discussed in terms of their various advantages for different sensing applications. Projections for future applications and implementation hardware trends will be highlighted.
