Abstract
Commercial distance sensors basing on the triangulation principle are highly accurate and reliable. However due to their contained electronics and optoelectronics they cannot be used in harsh environments such as high temperatures and strong electromagnetic fields. An all fiber optical triangulation sensor principle is presented here which can be used for tip clearance measurements of rotors of large engines such as power generators and turbines.
