Ultra-high-speed optical fiber sensor enables detection of structural damage in real time

Scientists have developed a real-time fiber-optic distributed sensing system for strain and temperature. The system requires light injection from only one end of the fiber and can achieve a sampling rate of 100 kHz, an improvement of over 5,000 times the conventional rate.
