A Fibre Optic Distributed Differential Displacement Sensor is modelled and experimentally verified to determine shape. Created using a steel tape, 9/125 μm single mode fibre, and adhesive, the FODDDS can be used to determine shape or displacement of any object to which it is bonded. A circular shape is examined, and a radius of curvature comparison yields an error of 2%. The sensitivity of the FODDDS, for the substrate thickness used in this experiment, is shown to be 1.27 mm between adjacent data points, which corresponds to a radius of curvature of 103 m.
