Special fibres for sensor applications
Telecommunications transmission using optical fibres can now be regarded as a mature technology. As a result, optical fibres are freely available at relatively low cost and this has led to an increasing interest in their use for other applications such as sensing, signal-processing and various fibre devices. There is also much interest in fibre-based switching using non-linear optical effects.
