This book describes the latest development in optical fiber devices, and their applications to sensor technology. Optical fiber sensors, an important application of the optical fiber, have experienced fast development, and attracted wide attentions in basic science as well as in practical applications. The purpose of this review article is devoted to presenting a summary of the basic principles of various optical fiber sensors, innovation in sensing and . The optical fiber sensors are divided into two categories: thrubeam and reflective. The thrubeam type comprises a transmitter and a receiver. The reflective type, which is a single unit, is available in 3 types: parallel, coaxial, and separate. The 3 are based on the shape of the crosssection of the optical fiber. Generally used for plastic fibers. Book Description. This book describes the latest development in optical fiber devices, and their applications to sensor technology. Optical fiber sensors, an important application of the optical fiber, have experienced fast development, and attracted wide attentions in basic science as well as in practical applications.
Abstract. This chapter is focused on the theory and opto-mechanical modeling of fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs). The chapter includes the opto-mechanical properties of optical fibers, induced optical anisotropy in optical fibers caused by temperature and structural loading, light propagation in optically anisotropic optical fibers, and the coupled-mode theory of the spectral response of . Why Fiber Optical Sensors in Biomechanics? An FOS system has four basic components: the light source, the optical fiber (OF), the sensor element (which can be intrinsic, that is, the OF itself, or extrinsic, that is, an external OF sensing device), and the light detector (Fig. ).Cited by: 1. The book details structural fatigue monitoring for dams and bridges, the effect of external and environmental factors on fiber optic sensor performance, interferometer configuration multiplexing architecture, polarization fading mitigation, and system integration, and updated applications of fiber optic sensors.4/5(3). An optical fiber is a flexible, transparent fiber made by drawing glass or plastic to a diameter slightly thicker than that of a human hair. Optical fibers are used most often as a means to transmit light between the two ends of the fiber and find wide usage in fiber-optic communications, where they permit transmission over longer distances and at higher bandwidths (data transfer .
