21 July 1998 Installation and testing of high-temperature optical fiber sensors
Author Affiliations +
We report test results using optical fiber sensor to measure dynamic strain and temperature on ceramic-matrix composite (CMC) specimens at temperatures up to 600 degrees C. For strain sensing we are employing extrinsic Fabry-Perot interferometric strain gages fabricated with gold-coated optical fibers and attached to the CMC specimens using high- temperature ceramic adhesive. For temperature measurements, specially fabricated Bragg and long-period grating sensors are being employed.
