Bragg reflection gratings and out-coupling taps for sensors can be written holographically within the core of many commercial fibers available today. The gratings appear to be permanent and have been tested to temperatures in excess of 500 degree(s)C. Quasi-distributed temperature, strain, pressure, chemical, and interferometric type sensors can be made with the wavelength selective, reflection gratings, and taps. The fiber gratings, and the different types of sensors they can make, conveniently lend themselves to WDM, TDM, and FDM types of multiplexing schemes. Instrumentation to detect the multiple sensors and measure their spectral shift for localized and quasi-distributed sensing is currently under development.
