This chapter is focused in the different optical structures and materials that have been used for the development of optical fiber humidity sensors. First, we will start with a short introduction of what relative humidity is, and why it has been extensively investigated. We will make also a brief summary of the different options that have been developed by now, showing the evolution of this research field. Then we will look more closely at the most used structures, the most common materials and the devices having greater sensitivity and resolution.
