Fiber optic test & qualification standards for ruggedized environments
2010 Edition, September 1, 2010 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

In recent years, the aerospace industry has made great strides in deploying fiber optic systems in every imaginable platform. A common complaint still remains - where is the standardized test and qualification standards for fiber optic...

Fiber Optic Splicers Specification Guide
IEEE GlobalSpec

Fiber optic splicers are tools that join two optical fibers end-to-end. Applications for fiber optic splicers include networking and telecommunications. They are also known as fusion splicers. They are often used with Fiber Optic Cleavers and...

Fiber Optic Cables Specification Guide
IEEE GlobalSpec

Fiber optic cables are composed of one or more transparent fibers enclosed in protective coverings and strength members. Fiber optic cables allow signals, such as light, to travel through without interference. A real fiber optic cable is made of...

Fiber optic sensor configurations
2015 Edition, Volume 1, March 1, 2015 - Southern California Institute of Technology

The main goal of this work is to provide a brief overview of the fiber optic sensor multiplexing configurations and techniques as well as some recent advances and trends of the most important fiber optic sensor configurations. Distributed and point sensors are explained...

Multimode fiber optic sensors
1982 Edition, January 1, 1982 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Sperry Research Center and Sperry Corporation have been actively developing fiber optic sensors for a variety of military and commercial applications. Multimode technology has been the preferred approach because appropriate fiber optic components are commercially...

Managing part selection problems for rugged environments
1996 Edition, January 1, 1996 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

The successful design and manufacturing of a product depends, among other factors, upon the careful managing and selection of its component parts. Cost overruns, problems of sustaining production and maintaining the product, and providing customer satisfaction through sustained reliable performance...

Intrinsic fiber-optic sensors
1991 Edition, Volume 27, January 1, 1991 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

The basic theory of optical sensors is explained. State-of-the-art fiber-optic sensors are examined. There are two types of fiber-optic sensors: extrinsic and intrinsic. With extrinsic sensors, light leaves the fiber and is blocked or reflected before going back...

Fiber optic smart structures
1996 Edition, Volume 84, June 1, 1996 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Fiber optic sensor technology has experienced tremendous growth since its early beginnings in the 1970's with early laboratory demonstrations of fiber optic gyros and acoustic sensors and the introduction of the first commercial intensity and spectrally based sensors....

Fiber Optic Connectors Specification Guide
IEEE GlobalSpec

Fiber optic connectors are used to align and join two or more fibers together to provide a means for attaching to, or decoupling from, a transmitter, receiver, or any other fiber optic equipment. An adapter is a mechanical device used to align and join two...

Fiber Optic Connector Epoxy
Fiber Instrument Sales, Inc./FIS

There are a number of fiber optic connector epoxies on the market that offer a range of curing options, depending on their specific chemical compositions. All of these fiber optic connector epoxies require that manufacturer recommendations be followed explicitly,...
