Optical fiber technology has been under development for the past 50 years, and this technology owe their development to two of the most important scientific advance made in the laser findings, and the modern low-loss optical fiber. In recent years, Optical Fiber Sensors (OFS) have proved to be a potentially excellent technique for real-time in-situ monitoring of a variety applications, such as Structural Health Monitoring (SHM), due to their numerous advantages. Being non-electrical devices, its offer immunity to electromagnetic and radio frequency interference. Due to its small size and light weight, it allows access into normally inaccessible area and has the capability for remote sensing. Optical fiber sensors are dielectric devices that are generally chemically inert. They do not require electric cables for their performance and are technically ideal for working in hostile media or harsh environments for applications in remote sensing. It also offers high sensitivity and resolution which allows a great number of sensors to operate in the same system, and the possibility to be integrated within the material. A typical structural health monitoring system is composed of a network of sensors that measure the parameters i.e. temperature, strain, stress, vibrations, pressure and etc. relevant to the state of the structure and its environment.
