Paper Abstract

Since the initial demonstrations of various fiber optic sensing techniques in the laboratory, much progress has been made in creating practical sensors for use in real world applications. In particular, sensors utilizing the properties of optical gratings and sensors exploiting polarization effects have been intensively investigated. Both multimode and single mode fiber sensors have utilized these transduction techniques. In this paper, a brief review of grating and polarization optics will be provided followed by a more detailed analysis of a number of specific multimode and single mode fiber optic sensors. Included among these will be hydrophones, pressure sensors, strain sensors, vibration sensors, linear position sensors and speed/torque sensors. The practical application of these sensors will also be discussed.
