Abstract
A technique for embedding one or more optical fibers in a cast metal part or structure while maintaining optical transmission through the fiber is presented. This technique provides nondestructive monitor of internal perturbations of the structure. Application of the method to embedded fiber optic sensors in metallic structures and to fiber-embedded metal feedthrough are reported and the performances of temperature and ultrasound fiber sensor embedded in a cast aluminum block are demonstrated.
