Paper Abstract

Fiber optic sensors have the small size, low weight and environmental ruggedness to enable their being embedded directly into composite materials. The resulting smart structures have the potential to greatly enhance the usage of practical composite materials in aerospace applications by reducing manufacturing costs, enabling structural integrity monitoring through nondestructive evaluation and providing sensing capability to augment control systems.
