AFL: The Evolution of Optical Fiber Cable Design for Sensor Applications

Since its invention in the 1970s, optical fiber has provided a technology-based vehicle to improve the performance of a variety of applications that were traditionally served by older copper conductor based systems. Optical fiber based systems have enabled improvements in capabilities and functionality that are simply not possible with copper-only systems. Typically, optical fiber systems enable higher rates of data transfer over longer transmission distances. Telecommunications applications have demonstrated this benefit through improved capability for voice, data and video transmission.
