Coated fiber pressure sensors utilizing pressure release coating material

Image Number 5 for United States Patent #6611633.

This invention pertains to a sensor comprising of glass optical fiber, a cellular pressure release material surrounding the fiber, and means for determining responsivity of the sensor, the sensor having responsivity of at least about -160 dB re rad/, which corresponds to sensitivity of about 50 times better than prior art. The sensor can be made part of an optical interferometer which is characterized by splitting of an entering light beam and measurement of an optical phase shift caused by light traversing different paths. The sensor can form a part of a fiber Bragg grating geometry characterized by a fiber Bragg grating in the glass fiber covered by the cellular pressure release material wherein shift of the Bragg wavelength induced by strain on to the cellular pressure release material is measured.
