Special Issue in Biosensors: Optical Sensing Technology for Point-of-Care Diagnostics
Due to their high sensitivity, resistance to electromagnetic interference, corrosion resistance and ease of deployment, optical fiber sensors have been widely applied in many fields, such as civil engineering monitoring, oil and gas pipeline monitoring, power cable monitoring and fire alarms. With the increasing demand for wide dynamic ranges, fast measurement and real-time monitoring, optical fiber sensing technology faces a series of challenges and opportunities. This Special Issue addresses all types of fiber optic sensors and systems, from their fundamental science background to their application. We are inviting the submission of original papers and review papers detailing the latest advances in optical fiber sensing technology, including optic fiber gyro, novel fiber optic sensing mechanisms, fiber optic sensor system technologies, fiber optic sensor applications, etc.

Abstract: The application of structural health monitoring (SHM) systems in oceanography has been a developing studied. A lot of recent investigations are carried out with a specific focus on fiber-optic (FO) sensing methods, owing to advantages including small size, flexibility, durability, anti-electromagnetic interference and high transmission rate. In this paper, three categories of FO sensing method in marine SHM field, including point sensing, quasi-distributed sensing, and distributed sensing, are reviewed. These techniques measure physical variations of sensitive FO sensors in properties of the optical signal when exposed to the ocean environment. This review paper cites the typical FO sensors and their practical application status in SHM of marine infrastructure and geomorphology. The merit and demerit of all the sensing schemes are discussed and compared. This review provides a developments and challenges of the future of FO sensor for marine SHM field.
