Abstract
A sensing head configuration and the necessary interrogation parameters to simultaneously measure strain and temperature using a single FBG are presented and demonstrated. By writing the FBG in a linearly etched fibre, we were able to use the information encoded in the peak wavelength and in the spectral width of the fibre Bragg grating. The spectral width of the grating depends uniquely on the applied strain and is temperature independent. An uncertainty of ±15.26 με and ±1.92 ºC was obtained in the experimental verification.
