Abstract
It is has been noted that for fiber Bragg grating sensor (FBGS), the tensile strengths of fiber Bragg grating sensors (FBGSs) were decreased after the gratings were written, which may reduce the sensor's measurement range obviously. In this paper, we focused on the damage behaviours of FBGS after fabrication experimentally. Firstly, the tensile tests were carried to measure the tensile strengths of naked optical fiber, decoated optical fiber and optical fiber with Bragg gratings to learn deduction of the tensile strength of optical fiber in the cases respectively. Further, the microscope photography was used to observe the surfaces of optical fiber with or without exposure of excimer laser. The main conclusion is that the UV pulse is the main contribution to reduce the strength remarkably, and the mechanical decoating method also can induce the surface damage on the optical fiber.
