Over the past two decades, development of fiber optic sensors has led to devices and systems which are able to measure over 60 different parameters. Perhaps even more noteworthy is the fact that commercially available fiber optic sensors are increasing in frequency and in actual deployment. It is a vibrant field with clear advantages over electron-based sensors in certain applications, particularly those where electromagnetic interference wreaks havoc. This seminar will introduce you to the operation, implementation limits, and practical benefits associated with fiber optic sensors.

You will be able to:

  • Recognize how optical fibers are used in sensing and communication applications
  • Identify the strengths and weaknesses of fiber optic sensors
  • Explain how a combination of sensing schemes may prove optimal for your application
  • Visualize how to apply fiber optic sensors and related technology to solve real business situations

You will cover:

  •  Sensing
  • Fundamentals of Optical Fibers
  • Fiber Optic Sensor Components
  • Intensity-modulating Fiber Optics sensors
  • Spectral-modulating Fiber Optics sensors
  • Phase-Modulating Fiber Optic sensors
  • Applications
  • Sensor Designs
