Microbend loss fiber optic direction and amplitude sensors for underwater applications
(Acoustical Society of America, 1990-07-01)
Dual purpose fiber optic microbend loss sensors have been developed for measurement of underwater acousticwave amplitudes and for detection of the direction of wave propagation. Three different construction schemes for ...
Miniaturized Fiber-Optic Michelson-Type Interferometric Sensors
(Optical Society of America, 1991-03-01)
We present a novel, miniaturized Michelson-type fiber-optic interferometric sensor that is relatively insensitive to temperature drifts. A fused-biconical tapered coupler is cleaved immediately after the coupled length and ...
Fabry-Perot Fiber-Optic Sensors in Full-Scale Fatigue Testing on an F-15 Aircraft
(Optical Society of America, 1992-02-01)
We report results from fiber-optic-sensor field tests on an F-15 aircraft mounted within a full-scale test frame for the purpose of fatigue testing. Strain sensitivities of the order of 0.01 _m/m have been obtained.
