About This Webinar
While standard distributed fiber-optic sensing (FOS) has seen widespread adoption in the long-term monitoring of large structures and assets, high-definition distributed fiber-optic sensing (HD-FOS) has emerged as an important engineering tool in the design, validation, and manufacturing of advanced composite materials and systems.

This session describes how advanced optical frequency domain reflectometry (OFDR) technology has evolved to deliver fiber-optic sensor solutions with sub-millimeter spatial resolution and high sensitivity when capturing strain and temperature profiles. Application examples illustrate how HD-FOS is an ideal fit for the unique challenges of composite materials, including high-fidelity design validation, challenging manufacturing processes including joining and welding, and building smart parts for damage detection.
