 Book Description



Updating and adding significant new material, the new edition of this seminal work continues to highlight the development of fiber optic sensors and classic applications, while providing an overview of current methods for the construction of high-speed and high-capacity fiber sensor systems. In particular, it updates information on the Fiber Optic Gyroscope (FOG), including its use for GPS guidance. It also adds a chapter that introduces a new type of fiber grating fabricated by femtosecond laser irradiation, which offers improved sensing capability in harsh environments. It also adds a new chapter on fiber optic chemical/biomedical sensors, a fast growing market.


The need for both intrinsic and extrinsic fiber optic sensor technologies continues to grow. To meet the demands of this fast expanding applications-driven market, Fiber Optic Sensors, Second Edition presents both the latest advances in fiber optic sensor technology, such as the application of photonic crystal fibers to fiber optic gyroscopes, and recent application opportunities, including the use of fiber optic sensors as a minimally invasive medical treatment.


Adding significant new material, the book continues to provide a progressive history of each sensor type as well as basic principles and fundamental building blocks for practical applications in the electrical aerospace, defense and manufacturing, smart structure, undersea surveillance, medical, and gas and oil industries.
