Fiber optic sensors

  1. Sep 27, 2011 #1
    hello

    can someone suggest a simple fiber optic pressure/temperature sensor that can be constructed
    ...with reasonable accuracy and less equipment....

    i came across a few papers about the same....but not sure about the scale and precision required...

    please help

    thanks

    s sekhar, Welcome to Physics Forums!

    Accurate and sensitive pressure and temperature sensors can be formed with a simple fiber optic system. Here is some background information to study:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiber_optic_sensor

    Here is an example of an application:

    “Cost-effective assembly of a basic fiber-optic hydrophone for measurement of high-amplitude therapeutic ultrasound fields”:

    Suggestion: Google and Wikipedia are your friends! Learn how to use them.
