2nd International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications

S6: Fiber Optic Sensors

Section Chair:
Dr. Alberto Vallan, Department of Electronics and Telecommunications, Politecnico di Torino, Italy

This session is focused on Fiber Optic Sensors (FOS) and related applications. In the sensor market, FOS represent a relevant portion which is rapidly growing thanks to the availability of new optical and electro-optical devices characterized by a low-cost, a reduced power consumption and small dimensions. Session topics concern all the aspects related to the use of optical fibers in the sensor field, such as the development and testing of intrinsic sensors, the usage of fibers for extrinsic sensors or to power non-optical sensing devices, and also original fiber sensor applications and in-field results.

Suggested topics include:

  • Fiber optic sensors for structural monitoring
  • Health related applications
  • High voltage/current/EM-field measurements
  • Sensors for harsh environments
  • MRI compliant sensors
  • Chemical and biochemical sensors
  • Fiber Bragg Gratings
  • Interferometric sensors
  • Polarimetric sensors
  • Disposable fiber sensors
  • Plastic Optical Fiber (POF) sensors
  • Photonic-crystal fibers, microstructured fibers and other innovative fibers for sensing applications
  • Quasi-distributed and distributed sensors
  • Sensor testing and characterization procedures
  • Multiplexing and remote sensing
  • Power-over-fiber for sensor applications
  • Modeling and correction of systematic effects and influence quantities
