    1. Scope

    1.1 This terminology standard is a compilation of definitions of technical terms related to optical fiber sensing systems, used in the various sections of standards under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee F36.

    1.2 Where possible definitions are stated as a single sentence, with necessary supplementary information as a Discussion. This approach is used to simplify explanations of the meanings of technical terms for the benefit of those not conversant with them, to facilitate a precise understanding and interpretation of F36 ASTM standards.
