Intrinsic Fiber Sensors

  In the intrinsic fiber sensor, external measurandas such as pressure, vibration, temperature interact with optical fiber element and cause fiber bending, fiber distortion and a change in the refractive index of the sensing fiber.

Because of the refractive index change, lights that travel through the fiber are affected accordingly. The changes in light properties, such as light intensity, light wavelength and light phase are then detected. The magnitude of measurands interacting with the fiber can then be determined.
