A fiber-optic sensor is a sensor that uses optical fiber either as the sensing element ("intrinsic sensors"), or as a means of relaying signals from a remote sensor to the electronics that process the signals ("extrinsic sensors"). Fibers have many uses in remote sensing.

Depending on the application, fiber may be used because of its small size, or because no electrical power is needed at the.

An optical fiber's dispersion is the tendency for the fiber to either broaden or narrow a pulse as it travels along the fiber. In a single-mode fiber, chromatic dispersion of the fundamental mode is caused by the dispersive properties of the materials that the fiber is made from, referred to as material dispersion, as well as by the dispersive.
