Paper Abstract

As the use of optical fibers and fiber devices for chemical sensing continues to grow, research and development efforts are beginning to turn to the accomplishment of measurements of spatially averaged chemical concentration, spatial profiles of concentration, the measurement of multiple analyses with a single sensor, and the use of fiber bus structures to carry information from multiple sensors. This paper discusses some of the means by which these measurements can be accomplished, reviews specific examples of each multiplexing or distributed sensing technique, and speculates on the directions such research will take in the future.
