Fiber optic sensors have gained importance in the last two decades. Compared to conventional sensor systems, they have essential advantages as they can be placed far away from the evaluation systems, are suited for distributed sensor networks, have high potential for miniaturization, and thus can be used to measure in small spaces. Furthermore, optical fibers are insensitive against many external influences, e.g. electromagnetic fields, temperature or acids. This book describes fiber optic measurement systems for industrial and biomedical applications. It underlines the fiber optic measurement advantages compared to conventional systems, presents the different necessary requirements, and describes their applications. It is very much focused on applications that have already been commercially implemented. Each chapter focuses on specific fiber optic sensor technologies, and contains an introduction to the basic principles of the described fiber optic sensor technology, as well as their applications. Ancillaries may be added to the book (tables and equations in appendices), and summaries, additional photographic material, and questions for courses on an accompanying website.Reseña del editor:
