Paper Abstract

An interferometric fiber optic sensor using ordinary single-mode fibers is developed to detect elastic strain waves for nondestructive evaluation of composite materials. This fiber sensor has been embedded in both graphite/epoxy and Kevlar/epoxy composite specimens. Applications of the sensor for detection of acoustic emission and laser generated ultrasound are presented. Limitations of the sensor are also discussed. 1.
