View the Complete Application at the US Patent & Trademark Office
Disclosed is a design for distributed optic fiber sensors and a corresponding method for sensing chemical concentrations with distributed fiber optic sensors, which utilizes segments of optical fiber which incorporate multiple sensing locations along the fiber. The distributed sensors incorporated into the optic fiber generate signals which are simultaneously detected and combined to produce a resultant signal with the effective optic fiber sensor length equal to that of the corresponding fiber segment.
