Included are a new chapters covering the technology and applications associated with fiber optic grating sensors and fiber optic biomedical sensors. These two areas have been the subject of intensive research over the past 20 years and are rapidly being introduced into the field. The 2nd edition also includes a new introductory chapter which acts as a guide for the content of the book while provide and up to date overview of the status and likely future directions of the technology.
- This will be the first major textbook in this field that is suitable for undergraduates and graduate students and contains a complete set of questions accompanied be a highly integrated text
- The book is also an important reference for professionals who want a rapid and complete introduction to various classes of fiber optic sensors and their applications
- The book includes a full chapter on Fiber Optic Sensors for Oil Field Applications, one of the largest market applications of fiber optic sensor technology
