Abstract:  There has been an intense research in the area of fiber optic sensors over the last decade. Although there are wide ranges of application areas but in this review article we provide a number of practical applications of optical fiber based microbend sensor which provide geometric versatility and can be configured as “point” or “distributed” sensors. Due to the diversity of intensity-based sensing techniques, it is not possible to present a complete overview of the applications in this paper. However, an overview of various potential applications of microbend sensor in various hazardous environments is highlighted in this article.


Keywords: Microbend Sensor, Distributed, Fiber Optical Sensor (FOS)
