Proceedings PaperOptical Fibre Sensors - Practice And Possibilities
|Format||Member Price||Non-Member Price|
Fibre optic sensors have attracted a good deal of attention through a period which now extends over 20 years during which a wide range of practically usable devices has been demonstrated. An analysis of these devices indicates that a few appear to be applicable to a diversity of measurement problems. This paper describes in outline these potentially dominant fibre optic sensor technologies and recaps the current State of the Art in the demonstrated performance levels. Finally some prospects for future trends are outlined.
