Paper Summary on exposed-core optical fibres by Mr Roman Kostecki

Optical fibres for distributed corrosion sensing – Architecture and characterisation – Key Engineering Materials

We have fabricated exposed-core optical fibres made of silica, sturdy enough for use as detectors outside the lab. Such technology embedded in “smart structures” could be used to find corrosion in aircraft, ships or bridges or detect harmful bacteria in water supplies.
