Paper Abstract

A new fiber-optic surface roughness sensor based on polarization changes in light scattered from the measured rough surface is proposed. Polarization-maintaining optical fibers have been used for guiding light to and from the surface and a special fiber-optic head has been designed. The data obtained from the polarization measurements have been correlated with some parameters.
