abstract

Over the last few years, optical fiber sensors have seen increased acceptance and widespread use. Among the multitude of sensor types, FBG based sensors, more than any other particular sensor type, have become widely known and popular. Given their intrinsic capability to measure a multitude of parameters such as strain, temperature, pressure, chemical and biological agents - and many others - coupled with their flexibility of design to be used as single point or multi-point sensing arrays and their relative low cost, make of FBGs ideal devices to be adopted for a multitude of different sensing applications and implemented in different fields and industries. However, some technical hurdles and market barriers need to be overcome in order for this technology - and fiber sensors in general - to gain more commercial momentum and achieve faster market growth such as the need for industry standards on FBGs and FBG-based sensors, adequate packaging designs, as well as training and education of prospective customers and end-users.
