Overview

Fiber-Optic Fabry-Perot Sensors: An Introduction by Yun-Jiang Rao, Zeng-Ling Ran, Yuan Gong

The authors deliver a complete overview of fiber-optic Fabry-Perot (FFP) sensing technology, integrating the knowledge and tools of multiple fields including optics, sensing, micromachining, instrumentation, physics, and materials science. The main chapters discuss operating principles, microstructures, fabrication methods, signal demodulation, and instrumentation. This treatment spans the full range of structures (intrinsic/extrinsic, multimode fiber vs single-mode fibers), as well as advanced micromachining technologies and major interrogating and multiplexing methods for the formation of multi-point, quasi-distributed sensing networks. Readers will also gain a summary of state-of-the-art applications in oil, gas, and electricity industries, aerospace technology, and biomedicine.

Yun-Jiang Rao is Dean of the School of Communication & Information Engineering, and Director of the Key Lab of Optical Fiber Sensing & Communications at the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China. Zeng-Ling Ran and Yuan Gong are both associate professors at the Optical Fiber Technology Research Laboratory of the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China.

About the Author

Yun-Jiang Rao is dean of the School of Communication & Information Engineering, and director of the Key Lab of Optical Fiber Sensing & Communications at the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China. Prior to joining there, he was a research fellow/senior research fellow at the University of Kent at Canterbury, UK. He is a fellow of the International Society of Optical Engineering and has been working on fiber-optic Fabry-Perot sensors since he joined the groups of two outstanding pioneers of fiber-optic sensors, Prof. Brian Culshaw and Prof. David Jackson, in the early 1990s. He has authored or co-authored more than 300 peer-reviewed papers in scientific journals and international conference proceedings, which gained >2000 citations in Web of Science (H-index of 28) and >6000 citations in Google Scholar (H-index of 38). He serves as an associate editor of IEEE/OSA Journal of Lightwave Technology, and Optics and Laser Technology, and is also the editor-in-chief of Photonic Sensors.
