Paper Abstract

This tutorial review covers the principles of and prospects for fibre optic sensor technology in gas detection. Many of the potential benefits common to fibre sensor technology also apply in the context of gas sensing – notably long distance - many km - access to multiple remote measurement points; invariably intrinsic safety; access to numerous important gas species and often uniquely high levels of selectivity and/or sensitivity. Furthermore, the range of fibre sensor network architectures – single point, multiple point and distributed – enable unprecedented flexibility in system implementation. Additionally, competitive technologies and regulatory issues contribute to final application potential.
