Abstract
Silicon is best known to the optical fibre sensor community as a detector material. However, its remarkable optical and mechanical properties and its ease of fabriation point to an increasing use of material in other contexts. This paper briefly reviews the principal mechanical and optical properties of silicon and describes applications as a mechanically resonant environmental sensor and as a waveguiding medium for evanescent wave devices. High quality, high yield fibre optic sensors fabricated using standard silicon processing techniques are likely to become available in the very near future.
