Description

Low profile in-line partially reflecting splices have been developed to allow the nondestructive internal measurement of strain in advanced composite materials. The splices consist of stripped and cleaved fiber ends spaced a few tens of microns apart and rejacketed with fiber coating material. This paper reviews the use of optical time domain methods for internal materials evaluation, the development of such splices, and their system performance.
