Paper Abstract

A fiber-optic double - polarization Michelson - interfero- meter is employed for remote sensing of the surface strain of platesmade from Carbon fiber composites. Simultaneous unambiguousinterferometric (incremental) and polarimetric (analog) readout isdemonstrated employing conventional single mode fibers. The allowsfor the additional sensing of the transverse stress field along theadhesive embedded fiber.
