Distributed optical fibre sensors

Dakin, J.P., (1992) Distributed optical fibre sensors Udd, Eric (ed.) In Fiber Optic Sensors. The International Society for Optical Engineering., pp. 162-199.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This critical review paper covers the field of distributed optical fiber sensors. where measurements may be taken along the length of a continuous section of optical fiber. Such a feature greatly increases the information that can be obtained from a single instrument and hence the cost per sensing point can be more acceptable. The review will not attempt to cover all methods, but will give a selection of some of the more interesting theoretical concepts, describe the current status of research and indicate where optical sensing methods are being applied in commercial instruments
