Abstract
An optical-fiber strain-gauge based on Fabry-Perot interferometric principles together with a novel signal processing technique has been developed. Although the originally intended area of usage was aero-engineering, this paper describes its use as an aid to bone fracture fixation. Some trial results are presented and our further development strategies are discussed, in particular, the replacement of dielectric thin mirrors with fiber gratings.
