A liquid crystal fibre optic temperature switch

Augousti, A.T., Grattan, K.T.V. and Palmer, A.W. (1988) A liquid crystal fibre optic temperature switch. Journal of Physics E: Scientific Instruments, 21(8), pp. 817-819. ISSN (print) 0957-0233


Reports the development of a simple referenced liquid-crystal fibre-optic switch. The referencing is achieved via time multiplexing. The sensor has a response time of 5 s, within a 1 degrees C threshold. This threshold temperature may be altered by exchanging probes containing different liquid crystals in the probe head.
