Paper Abstract

A novel structure of fiber optic sensor has been developed which is characterized by a short-length, different core- size fiber insertion in a fiber as a transmission network line. Two types of a macrobending sensor and an environment sensitive sensor are demonstrated. The macrobending sensor is expected in the use as multi-points (quasi-distributed) sensor. The environment sensitive sensor has the capability of interrogating with environmental conditions. The detailed structure and sensing principle of these new types of sensors are reported together with an experimental setup example arranged from the practical point of view and its attractive applications.
