An all-fiber pressure sensor based on a fiber Bragg grating with the pressure sensitivity of 2.2x10-2 MPa-1 has been demonstrated. The physical configuration includes a FBG encapsulated in a polymer-half-filled metal cylinder with its end bonded to the central of a round plate attached to the surface of polymer, and the Young’s modulus of the polymer is four orders lower than FBG. This cylinder has two opening on opposite side of the wall at the polymer part. Under the pressure environment, the polymer can be pressurized along one radial direction only, and responds an axial force acting on the round plate, producing an axial strain on FBG. With a nice linearity, this sensor should be applied potentially for the measurement of mediums pressure, liquid level and depth underwater.
