Paper Abstract

Fiber Optic Sensors have been the topic of numerous conferences over the past 30 years, including the 22 International OFS meetings. These events, driven predominately by academic and research institutions, have helped develop the science of fiber optic sensing, and served an important role in growing the knowledge base in this field. The applications of fiber sensors has always been an important topic for discussion but, apart from a few notable exceptions, it has been a slow progression from lab-bench to realizing true differentiated, value-added, commercial applications for fiber sensors. The past decade has, however, been a tipping point for the commercial success of fiber optic sensors, particularly in industrial applications. This paper will review some of these advances and highlight areas where fiber optic sensors bring true commercial benefits in industrial settings.
