Abstract
A Brillouin-scattering-based distributed strain and temperature sensor (DSTS) has been employed to detect cracks on ceramic by measuring the strain distributions along the surface of the ceramic for the first time. The existence of cracks and their locations are identified by measuring the strain distribution on a sensing fiber bonded on the ceramic surface. Due to innovated design and signal processing, the distributed Brillouin sensor developed for this study achieves a uniquely high resolution and accuracy. Experimental study on ceramic tile specimens demonstrated the efficacy of the distributed Brillouin fiber optic sensor in detecting and locating fine cracks.
