Fiber Optics Sensors vs. Resistive Strain Gauges

A new paradigm for strain measurement

For over eight decades the resistive strain gauge has been the benchmark for measuring structural deformation, but fiber optic sensing can help improve accuracy while addressing known limitations of strain gauges. Fiber optic sensing has a lower cost of ownership, can be applied in a fraction of the time required for strain gauges, and provides spatially continuous strain data along the entire length of the fiber.
