Abstract
A simple method to measure the thermal expansion coefficient using a surface mounted Bragg grating sensor is presented. This method uses a single, uniform pitch Bragg grating fiber with preloading that is only partially glued on the specimen. After release, two Bragg wavelengths are observed. The Bragg wavelength reflected from the sensor section not glued to the specimen is used to measure temperature variations; and the Bragg wavelength reflected from the sensor section glued to the specimen is affected by thermal strain variations. Therefore, the thermal expansion coefficient can be determined by calculating the difference of the spectral separation between two Bragg wavelengths.
