Abstract

A major thrust for a larger scale introduction of fiberoptic sensors may be triggert by the need of installing increasing numbers of sensors in optically wired systems such as automated factories, mines, offshore platforms, ships, aircrafts, locomotives, automobiles, energy distribution systems etc. Here the sensors which may be discretely or continuously distributed in space are aimed to be operated and controlled by a central transceiver unit. They thus form what is called a sensor network.
