Open Access research that is better understanding work in the global economy...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation based within Strathclyde Business School.

Better understanding the nature of work and labour within the globalised political economy is a focus of the 'Work, Labour & Globalisation Research Group'. This involves researching the effects of new forms of labour, its transnational character and the gendered aspects of contemporary migration. A Scottish perspective is provided by the Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER). But the research specialisms of the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation go beyond this to also include front-line service work, leadership, the implications of new technologies at work, regulation of employment relations and workplace innovation.

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.
