Even before fiber optics made it big in the telecom industry, the technology was showing promise in the fields of industrial and environmental sensing. Decades of research are now being translated into safe, precise fiber-based measuring instruments, including gyroscopes, temperature probes, hydrophones and chemical monitors. Indeed, fiber sensors are finding applications everywhere from railways, tunnels and bridges to industrial ovens and waste-disposal systems.
