Abstract

Optical fibres are making ever increasing inroads into areas traditionally satisfied by older, more established technologies. One of the prime vehicles for this trend is the proliferation of specially-tailored fibres designed far specific applications. Since these applications are diverse (especially in the sensor field) and the required fibre characteristics often subtle, measurement of fibre frequently presents a challenge. On occasions it is even necessary to resort to indirect measurements by observing the performance of the fibre in the intended application, from which its characteristics can be implied. A particular example here is the fibre gyroscope, where signal processing techniques have progressed to such an extent that the gyro itself provides the ideal environment for high-accuracy measurements of fibre polarisation performance. It is the intention of this paper to review some of the many speciality fibres currently available or being developed, the selection being made to emphasise topical measurement issues. A summary of different fibre types, their applications and associated measurement problems is given.
