Abstract
Fiber-optic sensors are increasingly used if special requirements avoid the application of electrical sensors, or economic benefit is promised. The scientific background is well developed; however, there are some restrictions with respect to long-term reliable use. For a widespread practical use, sensor products must be manufactured, characterized and validated according to standards. Guidelines on how to apply sensors and evaluate their operation on-site including special facilities to evaluate applied sensors are needed. The paper will present validation methods to evaluate the quality of sensor systems function. It will also indicate lacks of knowledge and methods to be filled to promote the use of FOS.
