An Experimental Apparatus for the Characterization of Thick-Film Optical Waveguides
Optical sensors are largely used in modern metrology and quality control in manufacturing. Generally these sensors are based on the use of (i) discrete optical components, (ii) optical fibres and (iii) integrated optical devices. Main limitations of these sensors are the cost of bulk optics and the difficulties in the manufacturing of integrated optics.
