Alexis Mendez, MCH Engineering, USA

Over the past three decades, fiber optic sensors (FOS) have made a complete transition from basic lab prototypes to successful commercial products.  Their commercialization has been slow-moving and rocky at times, but always progressive, innovative and dotted with multiple successful companies, products and solutions along its path.  And, although the Covid19 crisis presents some challenges in the short term, the future outlook remains bright, with steady growth and new opportunities in biomedical, industrial, aerospace and environmental monitoring applications.  This tech-talk will do a brief overview of the present FOS market, its trends and future outlook.
