Paper Abstract

Acoustic emission is the leading structural health monitoring technique use for the early warning detection of structural damage in advanced composite structures associated with impacts, cracks, fracture, and delaminations. This paper describes progress towards the development of a fiber optic acoustic emission sensor (FAESense™) system based on the use of a novel two-wave mixing interferometer produced on a photonic integrated circuit (PIC) microchip.
