Paper Abstract

Fiberoptic sensors offer a number of unique features which make them attractive for a variety of applications. For example, a fiberoptic sensor can be immune to electromagnetic interference, is non-electrical, is compatible with fiber telemetry, can be very sensitive as well as being small in size and weight, and may be used in the development of sensor arrays. Fiber sensors have been considered for the measurement of a large number of physical parameters, ranging anywhere from temperature and pressure to rotation rate, magnetic field, specie concentration and, even, nuclear radiation. The fields of application of fiberoptic sensors include navigation, robotics, undersea detection, medical, chemical and so on.
