Fundamentals of optical fiber sensors.


Fundamentals of optical fiber sensors.

Ed. by Zujie Fang et al.

John Wiley & Sons


476 pages




Fang, Ronghui Qu, Haiwen Cai (all optics and fine mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Shanghai), and Ken K. Chin (physics, New Jersey Institute of Technology) compile scattered information on optical fiber sensors into a textbook for graduate and senior undergraduate students and a reference for scientists and engineers in the field. They explain the physical principles behind optical fiber sensors, and describe practical applications. The topics are fundamentals of optical fibers, fiber sensitivities and devices, fiber gratings and related devices, distributed optical fiber sensors, fiber sensors with special applications, and the extrinsic fiber Fabry-Perot interferometer sensor.
