Abstract
In this paper, we demonstrate that femtosecond laser pulse written fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) fabricated in specialty highly birefringent micro-structured optical fiber (MSF) can be used for high pressure and high temperature monitoring in downhole applications. The design of the micro-structure allows encoding the pressure information into the spectral separation between the two Bragg peaks reflected by the obtained MS-FBG. We obtained a differential pressure sensitivity of 3.30 pm/bar over a pressure range from atmospheric up to 1400 bar and at temperatures between 40 °C and 290 °C. Owing to the negligible differential pressure-temperature cross-sensitivity of 6.06E-3 bar/°C, the proposed MSFBG sensor is an ideal candidate for pressure monitoring in the presence of high temperature transients.
