This paper briefly outlines some of the on-going research work in fiber optic sensor technology at the University of Strathclyde. Five principal themes are identified including two in distributed sensing examining liquid detection and mechanical strain detection, a highly multiplexed system for the detection of methane gas and two specialized point measurement systems, one to detect the presence of drugs in the eye and the other to facilitate the non-contact assessment of the mechanical properties of materials. These examples, whilst not exhaustive, represent the cross section of activities on-going at Strathclyde and the diversity of applications within which the group has become involved. The work described here is all current though some has been established for several years. Within it are contributions from several members of the Group and it includes interactions with many external organizations who are acknowledged within the paper.
