Heating fiber optic sensors with in-fiber optical power enhances their versatility.

Kevin P. Chen, University of Pittsburgh

Fiber optic devices such as fiber gratings are key components for optical sensing and communications applications. They offer several important advantages over other optical and electronic techniques, including low manufacturing costs, immunity to electromagnetic fields, long lifetimes, high sensitivity and the ability to work in harsh environments. The small size and low transmission losses of optical fibers enable the deployment of sensor networks for multipoint and long-distance remote sensing. Fiber sensors embedded in structures can provide real-time information on structural...Read full article
