About this Research Topic
Recent developments have led to widespread research in the field of ocean optical fiber sensing technology (OOFST) owing to the advantages of long-distance transmission, multi-parameter sensing, wide-area in-situ measurement, etc. Such OOFST uses visible, near-infrared and mid-infrared light to support the detections of ocean salinity, temperature, depth, vibration, large objects movement, etc. New studies in this field have a strategic and essential role to enhance the sensitivity, accuracy, detection area, and detection variety, and meet the challenges in the complicated ocean environment.
