A self-contained discussion of fiber optics - unlike any others available. The intent of this book is to provide the reader with an overall background in fiber optic sensors. The primary focus is on the optical sensing mechanisms and various optical configurations associated with a broad range of sensing functions that include switches, counters, displacement, temperature, pressure, flow, liquid level, chemical analysis, rotation (gyroscopes), electric and magnetic field measurements, distributive sensing, and smart skins. This edition includes three new chapters, and eight others have been updated to give the reader an overall background in fiber optic sensors and information on new market opportunities. This third edition is a must have for product design engineers, system design engineers, plant engineering/maintenance staff, and anyone involved in measurement, testing, quality and standards.Contents: Fiber Optic Fundamentals Intensity-Modulated Sensors Phase-Modulated Sensors Wavelength-Modulated Sensors Digital Switches and Counters Displacement Sensors Temperature Sensors Pressure Sensors Flow Sensors Level Sensors Magnetic and Electric Field Sensors Chemical Analysis Rotation Rate Sensors (Gyroscopes) Distributed Sensing Systems Smart Skins and Structures Market Opportunities.
