Linear fiber optic sensor arrays are prone to catastrophic failure if a breakage occurs along the length of the array. A coupler chain array is proposed and experimentally demonstrated to have a lower susceptibility to signal loss when damage is implemented on the array. Three different array designs are compared and discussed.
