Abstract:

THIS PROJECT INVESTIGATES A NOVEL, FIBEROPTIC SENSOR FOR HIGH-TEMPERATURE ENVIRONMENTS IN WHICH EACH EIGENSTATE IN A POLARIZATION-PRESERVING FIBER FORMS AN INTERFEROMETER TO SENSE THE TEMPERATURE AND THE OTHER CAUSES OF OPTICAL-PATH-LENGTH CHANGES, SUCH AS STRAIN AND PRESSURE. THIS FIBEROPTIC SENSOR HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE IN HIGH-TEMPERATURE ENVIRONMENTS AS COMPARED TO THE DUAL-WAVELENGTH FIBER SENSOR.
