The purpose of this paper is to describe some of the work in the field of optical sensors which is in progress within the Division of Mechanical and Optical Metrology at N P L. Most of the optical work of the Division can be regarded as optical sensing of some sort but within the last year a small group has been established to look at optical sensors as such. The purpose of the group is to establish links with industry to help define the needs of users, to foster the research necessary to fulfil these needs, to ensure that special skills which exist at NPL are effectively exploited where necessary, and to be ready to fulfil an eventual need for traceability to national standards.
