Abstract

Approaching four decades have elapsed since the first patents were filed on fibre optic sensor technology. During that time basic principles have become well characterised and established and technological approaches and sensor realisation have become commercially and practically viable. This paper reviews just some of the progress in fibre sensors highlighting in particular the mechanisms involved in turning the bench demonstrator into competitive and effective product.
