Optical fibres have been available since the 1970s and are well known for their applications in telecommunications. Less well known are their abilities to perform measurements and to sense a wide range of physical parameters (sometimes with no electronic sensor equivalent). This talk will describe the fundamentals of optical fibres and their fabrication, and will then go on to review a number of measurement techniques based on fibre optic sensors, looking at how they are increasingly being deployed in a broad range of applications in the Oil & Gas industry.

Andrew Strong is a Physicist (University of Bath, 1987), Chartered Engineer and Fellow of the IET and has been actively contributing to the design, development, application and international marketing of optical fibre sensors and systems since 1986. Andrew has thirteen patents granted and pending and is author/co-author of 14 papers at presented at international optical and pipeline conferences. He is a registered UK Expert (IEC SC86C WG2 Fibre Optic Sensors) and a Member of BSI Committee GEL /86/3 (Fibre Optic Sensors).
