A review of microfiber and nanofiber based optical sensors

A review of microfiber and nanofiber based optical sensors
A review of microfiber and nanofiber based optical sensors
Rapid advances in optical microfiber and nanofibers (MNF) based sensors have been driven by powerful industries such as automotive, biomedical and defense, with the increasing demand for highly-sensitive, selective, nonintrusive, fast-response, compact and robust sensors that can perform in-situ measurements at remote and harsh environments. A diverse range of MNF based sensors have been developed for measuring refractive index, bio-chemical, temperature, current, displacement, bend, surface, acceleration, force, rotation, acoustic, electric field and magnetic field. Given the growing interest for this exciting area of scientific research, new designs are emerging continuously at a fast pace. This paper attempts to provide a comprehensive review of all MNF based sensors reported to-date. Sensors are divided according to their morphology and measurand.

Abstract

Rapid advances in optical microfiber and nanofibers (MNF) based sensors have been driven by powerful industries such as automotive, biomedical and defense, with the increasing demand for highly-sensitive, selective, nonintrusive, fast-response, compact and robust sensors that can perform in-situ measurements at remote and harsh environments. A diverse range of MNF based sensors have been developed for measuring refractive index, bio-chemical, temperature, current, displacement, bend, surface, acceleration, force, rotation, acoustic, electric field and magnetic field. Given the growing interest for this exciting area of scientific research, new designs are emerging continuously at a fast pace. This paper attempts to provide a comprehensive review of all MNF based sensors reported to-date. Sensors are divided according to their morphology and measurand.
