Optical fibre water sensors

Optical fibre water sensors are used to detect leaks. They serve to prevent transmission breakdown in telecommunication facilities, seepage from service or waste water in the earth or ground water pollution due to leakage of chemical substances. If a leak occurs, the water sensor cause measurable attenuation changes as a result of manufacturer-dependent macrobending loss in the fibre.
