Universal Self-Contained Fiber Optic Sensor Network

This device is capable of running many different sensors on a single duplex (double) fiber optic cable. The unique aspect of this application is that a multitude of sensors could be placed along the fiber optic cable which require no external power supply, diminishing the hazards and problems associated with external power. Each of these sensors derives its power from the light traveling within the fiber optic using photoreactive materials (like solar cells to power the sensor), and transmits information back to a central processing unit by modulating the light signal within the fiber optic as the carrier of data.
