Abstract

This paper reports on a novel fibre optic sensor that is capable of monitoring four independent parameters: strain, temperature, refractive index and the relative concentrations of specific chemical species. A unique feature of this sensor is that a conventional fibre-coupled Fourier transform infrared spectrometer is used to interrogate the sensor.
