Composite fibre and related detection system
 
Hook of Auxetix Limited, Great Britain,  developed a  composite fibre where one of the components is an optical fiber, and the components are intertwined. The first component may be wound around the second component, and optionally the second component is wound around the first component.  This structure can be used as an optical sensor. When the optical fibres are subjected to strain, the light transmission through them varies, and this variation in light transmission is measured in order to determine the degree of strain. Associated fibrous assemblies, composite materials, fabrics, detection systems, items of clothing and methods of detecting a physical variable are also disclosed.  (RDC 6/11/2012)
