The microfiber transducer is an optical fiber-based displacement/force transducer. It is fabricated by pulling an optical fiber to only a few microns in diameter. Different optical fibers are used. The microfiber thus obtained is sensitive to microbending.
It is used in the Mosquito sensor along with other types of displacement/force transducers.
