Optical fibre sensing has been around for some time, but only a small proportion of the sensing capabilities of fibre have been commercially exploited. Andrew Strong reflects on the current world of optical sensors and where the next commercial success may be found.
The largely unseen optical fibre that we take so much for granted today is a marvel of science. Normally consisting mostly of pure silica, it has a diameter of just a few millionths of a metre and levels of impurity in the glass of a few parts per billion – leading to optical losses close […]
