We investigate the feasibility of using optical fiber Bragg gratings for the sensing of ultrasonic fields for medical applications. In preliminary experimental investigations, ultrasonic waves with a frequency of 950 kHz have been detected with a noise limited pressure resolution of approximately 10-2 atmospheres in a 3 KHz measurement bandwidth.
