|Abstract: ||Multimode fiber optic Bragg grating sensors for
strain and temperature measurements using correlation signal processing methods have been developed. Two multimode Bragg grating sensors were fabricated in 62/125 m graded-index silica
multimode fiber; the first sensor was produced by the holographic method and the second sensor by the phase mask technique. The sensors have signal reflectivity of approximately 35% at peak
wavelengths of 835 nm and 859 nm, respectively.
Strain testing of both sensors has been done from 0 to 1000 με and the temperature testing from 40 to 80°C. Strain and temperature sensitivity values are 0.55 pm/με and 6 pm/°C, respectively.
The sensors are being applied in a power-by-light hydraulic valve monitoring system.|
