This paper will present recent developments in optical fibre sensors and optical fibre based instrumentation research undertaken at Cranfield University. New sensor techniques based on nanoscale molecular coatings deposited on singlemode fibres containing long period gratings and the use of singlemode fibres and coherent imaging fibre bundles in full-field speckle interferometry and planar Doppler velocimetry will be presented.
