Fiber Optic Sensor Commercialization Evolution Sensors Telecom R&D- Military and Industrial R&D- Telecommunications Laboratory Devices Multimode Systems; Mb/s transmission 1st Industrial Applications and Military Systems Advent of Single Mode Systems; Major. Figure Basic elements of an optical fiber sensing system. The fiber sensor can be either an intrinsic one--if the modulation takes place directly in the fiber--or extrinsic, if the modulation is performed by some external transducer as depicted in Fig. Figure Classification of optical fiber sensors. Benefits & AdvantagesFile Size: KB. A fiber-optic sensor is a sensor that uses optical fiber either as the sensing element ("intrinsic sensors"), or as a means of relaying signals from a remote sensor to the electronics that process the signals ("extrinsic sensors"). Fibers have many uses in remote sensing. Depending on the application, fiber may be used because of its small size, or because no electrical power is .
