    Abstract

    Realization of most fiber optic chemical sensor (FOCS) concepts is the result of numerous recent developments in fiber optic, optoelectronic, and computer technologies. For the most part, these developments have been motivated and funded by the communications industry. This paper provides a review of current technologies and an overview of FOCS concepts currently under development for environmental sensing and monitoring applications.
