'This publication's wide variety of topics should stimulate people
to read and discover the sensing potential of optical fiber and
devices. This book is a comprehensive introduction to the field
with a strong practical focus that undergraduate and graduate
students will find useful. It could also serve as a reference for
scientists and engineers who are working in the optical fiber
sensing area.' Lisa Tongning Li, Optics and Photonics News
