Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

In this paper, we investigate experimentally the performance of a prototype optical voltage sensor utilizing a piezoelectric component and a dual FBG sensor combined with an intesiometric detection scheme. The sensor construction allows for the sensor interrogation using a single photodetector, and by eliminating spectral scanning devices, the measurement system benefits from a significant cost reduction and potentially improved speed of operation. Preliminary voltage characterization reveals that the proposed sensor is capable of reliable ac voltage measurement.
