Optical methods are proliferating with the ready availability of light sources, detectors and optical components and devices. For mechanical measurements, optical techniques can be broadly classified into four main types - intensity sensors, diffraction/interferometric sensors and polarization sensors. These are classified based on the optical property that is altered by the measurand. Of-course the final display is the intensity but the information it provides varies with the sensor used.
