Abstract
An integrated software package is built-up for simulation studies of optical fibers and fiber optic sensors. The FOSenSim is a user interactive menu driven software package developed as a central simulation tool for optical fibers and FO sensors. This package incorporates simulation modules for study of optical fiber based on wave theory and various FO sensors based on ray optics and analytical geometry. The detailed mathematical models are developed for liquid level detector, through beam and reflection type displacement sensor, and refractive index sensor. The simulant results are used as a feedback for sensor design and fabrication process. At present, FOSenSim supports these sensors. However, due to modularity in software programming, it can be easily upgraded to incorporate other FO sensors.
