  A fiber-optic strain sensor is demonstrated by using a short length of polarization-maintaining photonic crystal fiber (PM-PCF) as the sensing element inserted in a Sagnac loop interferometer. Spectrum shift in response of strain with a sensitivity of pm ∕ μ ε is achieved, and the measurement range, by stretching the PM-PCF only, is up to 32 m to the ultralow thermal. OTG series fiber optics temperature sensors are designed for applications that require very focal temperature monitoring, fast response time and/or versatile sensor size packaging. The Gallium Arsenide − SCBG (Semiconductor Bandgap) technology OTG series optical sensor is available in diverse packaging.   This paper presents measurements of high temperatures using a Brillouin scattering based fiber optic sensor and large strains using an extrinsic Fabry-Perot int. Temperature and Strain Measurements with Fiber Optic Sensors for Steel Beams Subjected to . Abstract: A compact pressure sensor head with fiber optic temperature compensation has been built and tested which uses specific side-hole and "bow-tie" fibers respectively devoted to pressure and temperature measurements. The addressing scheme is based on the broad band interferometry technique. We describe the sensor arrangement and present the response curves for pressure and temperature .

Distributed polarimetric fiber optic sensors are based on the measurement of the state of polarization (SOP) of the backscattered light, which varies as a function of the scattering position in response to external perturbations, as described in details in the following section.

Many fiber-optic sensors for measuring temperatures are based on fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs). The operation principal is essentially based on the fact that the temperature affects the Bragg wavelength, i.e., the wavelength of peak change of Bragg wavelength caused by changes a temperature change Δ T and the strain ε is [4].

The remote fiber sensor is based on a lifetime measurement of 90 cm long EDF, which is diode-pumped by a nm laser and can be used to measure temperature in the range of 26°C to 60°C. A polarimetric sensor using high birefringent optic fibre is used to measure strain on the surface of a cantilevered beam.

Localization of the sensor is accomplished with either a dual 45° splice or a single 45° splice with mirrored endface. Quadrature signal recovery is obtained using a dual wavelength approach. A fiber-optic sensor for the measurement of strain is described, in which the measurand-induced changes in both phase and polarization state are simultaneously recovered.

Intrinsic sensors. Optical fibers can be used as sensors to measure strain, temperature, pressure and other quantities by modifying a fiber so that the quantity to be measured modulates the intensity, phase, polarization, wavelength or transit time of light in the fiber.

Sensors that vary the intensity of light are the simplest, since only a simple source and detector are required.

The optical fibre is the sensing element without any additional transducers in the optical path. The interrogator operates according to a radar-style process: it sends a series of pulses into the fibre and records the return of the naturally occurring scattered signal against time.
