Abstract

Measurement of physical parameters using mechanical transducers is an important part of fiber optical sensing. Fiber Bragg grating (FBG)–based sensors with dedicated transducers can be designed to measure different physical parameters and can operate in extremely harsh environments. This makes the FBG sensor very suitable for special applications and has advantages over conventional electrical sensors. This chapter discusses the considerations for the development of FBG sensor systems for harsh environments and/or high performance. Applications, considerations, ...
