Distributed Optical Fiber Sensing

Serving as a unique, efficient solution to modern demands for security and safety sensing, distributed optical fiber sensing are critical components in areas such as natural disaster prevention and civil engineering. The unique book provides detailed explanations on how to install early warning systems for the prevention of natural disasters, flaws in civil engineering structures (dams, bridges, tunnels), and issues in the oil industry (pipeline leakage detection, off-shore platform anchoring.) Addressing the principles and specificities of distributed fiber sensing, this resource shows different possible implementations, their potential, and their limitations.
