How fibre optical sensors work
An example of an integrated sensor is the deformation sensor, the schematic is below…
It is based on the same basic principle of white-light interferometryas described in the section on point sensor above.Light from a white-light source is transmitted via optical fibre tothe optical sensor. Here the sensor consists of a fibre optical coupler branching out into two fibres of different length and having aminiature mirror attached at each end.
