Special Issue Information
For the several decades, optical fibers have sharply revolutionized communication industries owing to their high performance. Not once as the high performance communication media, however, with the help of optoelectronic technology, optical fibers have been studied as novel and smart “Optical Fiber Sensors”. Unique beneficial characteristics such as wavelength multiplexing, low propagating loss, high sensing sensitivity, low fabrication cost, small form factor, and immunity to electromagnetic interference (EMI) have made optical fibers suitable for sensing various physical, chemical, and biological parameters. Furthermore, their sensing abilities have been widely improved by the advance of various fiber optic technologies like fiber gratings, fiber interferometers, Brillouin scattering, surface plasmon resonance, micro-structured fibers, nano-wires, etc. As a result, commercializing optical fiber sensors become great interest to many companies. have a in . It is expected that they will possess a big part of sensor market shortly. This special issue, “Optical Fiber Sensors”, will cover every possible fiber optic sensing techniques for every applicable field. Your contribution is most warmly expected and would be highly appreciated.
