Speech Title: Optical Fiber Sensors and Their Applications
Optical fiber-based devices have been widely deployed in recent years.  There are many advantages of using fiber as a sensor. These include electrically-passive operation, light weight, immunity to radio frequency interference and electromagnetic interference, high sensitivity, compact size, corrosion resistance, easily multiplexing and potentially low cost. Several novel fiber-based sensors and technologies developed are presented here, including fiber Bragg grating (FBG) based sensors, photonic crystal fiber (PCF) based sensors, specialty fiber-based sensors and distributed fiber sensing systems. FBGs as instinctive sensors, are ingeniously designed as two-dimensional (2D) tilt sensors, displacement sensors, accelerometers and corrosion sensors here; PCF based evanescent field absorption sensor, PCF induced Mach-Zehnder interferometer and Fabry-Perot refractometer for temperature and refractive index sensing are presented; based on localized surface Plasmon resonant (LSPR) effect, nano-sized fiber tip with gold nanoparticles are demonstrated for live cell index bio-sensing applications
