This Special Issue wishes to explore one of the most popular trends of relevance to Sensors, which represents an influential platform for the exchange of scientific knowledge in the field of fiber Bragg gratings and sensor systems based on them. The thirty-year history of FBG development has already transformed them from being exotic novelties to classical sensors, without which it is impossible to imagine any biosensing or downhole telemetry systems, underwater, geophysical or space technology. We are opening a new page in their history, and give the floor to three different groups of scientists. The first group consists of those who are just discovering FBGs and admire their capabilities in comparison with electronic and other types of optical sensors. The second comprises those who are masters of using FBG and are trying to expand the scope of their applications toward infinity, finding new and new ideas for building both point sensors and multi-sensor systems. Still others are those who in spite of the conservatism of the classical mathematical models describing FBG structure, break it by introducing inhomogeneities or making it random, obtaining synergistic effects for promising applications. The ultimate goal of this Special Issue is to find ways to build smart fiber Bragg gratings and identify their future applications, drawing on the research results of authors who will accept our invitation to publish.
Bearing this in mind, this issue is dedicated, but not limited, to the following topics:
- Modeling and simulation of FBGs;
- Fabrication of FBGs;
- FBGs in different classes’ optical fibers;
- Multiparameter FBG sensors;
- Sensors on shifted, chirped, tilted, superstructured, etc. FBGs;
- Нigh-speed optoelectronic interrogation methods;
- Microwave photonics interrogation methods;
- FBG sensors in dynamic measurements;
- FBG sensors in quasistatic measurements;
- FBG sensors in DTS, DTSS, and DAS systems;
- FBG sensors in onboard applications;
- FBG sensors in medicine and living systems monitoring;
- Dual nature of FBGs as elements of sensor and telecommunication systems;
- Historical and future trends reviews.
We hope that the works published in this Special Issue will confirm the fundamental importance of the FBG invention and the comprehensive application of FBGs in all areas of human activity, as well as open up new prospects for the creation and application of FBGs as quanta of various cyberphysical systems.
