Why choose Optical Fibers?
High Sensitivity and Precision
Optical fibers enable highly sensitive measurements, making them ideal for applications where precise and accurate data is crucial. They can detect even small changes in parameters such as temperature, strain, pressure, and displacement.
Optical fibers are non-intrusive, meaning they can be embedded or attached to structures without interfering with the integrity or performance of the system. This characteristic is valuable in applications that require non-destructive testing or monitoring.
Optical fibers are immune to electromagnetic interference, making them reliable in environments with high electrical noise, radio frequency interference, or strong magnetic fields.
Wide Dynamic Range
Optical fibers can cover a wide dynamic range, allowing them to handle both small and large measurements. This versatility makes them suitable for various sensing applications with different measurement requirements.
Multiple sensors can be combined into a single optical fiber using various techniques like wavelength division multiplexing or time-division multiplexing. This enables simultaneous sensing of different parameters with a single fiber, reducing complexity and costs.
Remote Sensing Capability
Optical fibers can be used for remote sensing, allowing measurements to be taken in hard-to-reach or hazardous locations. This feature is beneficial in industries such as oil and gas, aerospace, and structural monitoring.
Other numerous advantages
Optical fibers are compact and lightweight; they are thin and flexible making them easy to integrate into various devices; they enable multipoint sensing; they are intrinsically safe in hazardous environments; they have minimum energy consumption and many more.
