*** OFS Fitel Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 8 -- OFS Fitel, Norcross, Ga., has been assigned a patent (8,368,899) developed by Mikhail Sumetsky, Bridgewater, N.J., for a "coiled evanescent optical sensor." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An evanescent optical sensor is formed as a coil of either optical fiber or microfiber. By coiling the fiber/microfiber, the overall size of the sensor is significantly reduced when compared to "straight path" fiber sensors, yet exhibits a similar degree of sensitivity. An optical signal is coupled into a fiber coil that has been immersed in an ambient to be analyzed. The use of a coil configuration results in creating a plurality of whispering gallery modes (WGMs) that will propagate along the coil by reflecting from the surface of the curved fiber/microfiber forming the coil. The interference between these modes will be modified as a function of the properties of the ambient environment. Environmental changes cause variations in the optical length of the coil as "seen" by the various modes, and the interference of the modes is analyzed by studying the transmission spectrum at the output of the coil." The patent application was filed on Aug. 10, 2010 (12/853,710). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,368,899&OS=8,368,899&RS=8,368,899 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.
