Sensors are an integral part of modern life. Indeed it would be hard to imagine a life without these devices. Their uses range from measurement in smart structures such as instrumented bridges, to monitoring the temperature in your home oven to help you cook at roast, to sensors designed to help you park your car. In this seminar I will describe research that I have undertaken in the development and application of a number of different sensor types. In particular I will focus upon optical fibre sensors for use with the Cochlear Implant, atmospheric corrosion sensors and research undertaken to determine the presence of microbiologically influenced corrosion in the bilges of maritime vessels.
