Paper Abstract

The combination of fiber optics with micro-structure technologies and sensitive thin films offers great potential for the realization of novel sensor concepts. Minitured optical fiber sensors with thin films as sensitive elements could open new fields for optical fiber sensor applications. Thin films work as sensitive elements and transducer to get response and feedback from environments, optical fiber here are employed to signal carrier. This paper reviews some works on the integration of thin films with fiber micro-structures for sensing application, which are currently conducted at the National Engineering Laboratory for Fiber Optic Sensing Technologies, Wuhan University of Technology.
