Plastic Optical Fiber Sensors cover the fundamentals and applications of a new class of fiber sensors. With contributions from leading academics in the area, this book covers the theory of plastic optical fiber sensors or (POFs), as well as applications in oil, gas, biotechnology, and energy fields.

Using multiple examples, the editors showcase the advantageous characteristics of POFs, such as ease of handling, large diameter, inexpensive peripheral components and simple termination tools. By doing so, the editors assert that there has been a proliferation of the use of POFs in new consumer products. The book also highlights uses for building various products, such as a POF sensor for oil trucker valve monitoring, a monitoring system for high voltage substation switch, an oil leaking sensor for offshore platforms and a solar tracker for illumination.

Including over 300 black and white images, this book would be highly beneficial for professionals in manufacturing as well as academics in universities, particularly those who use optical fiber sensors on a regular basis.

Marcelo Martins Werneck received the Degree in electronic engineering from the Pontifícia Universidade Católica of Rio de Janeiro, in 1975 and his M.Sc. degree from the Biomedical Engineering Program, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), in 1977. His Ph.D. degree was obtained from the University of Sussex, Brighton, U.K., in 19...
