We first introduce how the unique properties of PCF can benefit Bragg grating based temperature insensitive pressure and transverse load sensing. Then we describe how the latest developments in mPOF Bragg grating technology can enhance optical fiber pressure sensing. Finally we explain how the integration of specialty fiber sensor technology with bio-compatible polymer based micro-technology provides great opportunities for fiber sensors in the field of healthcare.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/3837||Other Identifiers:||0277786X||DOI:||10.1117/12.901240||Rights:||© 2011 SPIE-OSA-IEEE||Type:||Conference Papers|
