Abstract

Optical fibres are making ever-decreasing inroads into areas traditionally satisfied by older, more established technologies. In particular, sensors which rely on the external modulation of the properties of an optical fibre (intrinsic sensors) are receiving much attention since they can be made extremely sensitive and can be used for distributed acoustic, magnetic and electric field monitoring. To date, however, the great majority of experimental and commercial fibre sensors employ telecommunications fibres, largely as a result of excessive environmental sensitivity. Consequently, attention is now being given to the design of special sensor fibres with enhanced (or depressed) sensitivity to specific measurands
