The combination of fiber optics with sensitive nano-films offers great potential for the realization of novel sensing concepts. Miniatured optical fiber sensors with thin films as sensitive elements could enable new fields of optical fiber sensor applications. Thin films work as sensitive elements and transducer to get response and feedback from environments, while optical fibers are employed to work as signal carrier. In this chapter fiber optic sensors based on nano-films are reviewed.
