Abstract
The paper presents novel pressure sensor based on the long period gratings written with an arc-induced method in a boron co-doped photosensitive fiber. The achieved pressure sensitivity is at least 5 times higher than for the gratings written in other fibers and presented to date. It was found that the incorporation of B2O3 in the core of the fiber is responsible for its higher pressure sensitivity. This conclusion has been achieved after considering the variations of the elastic properties of the glass versus its composition. The sensitivity of the structure to temperature and to external refractive index was also discussed. It was proven that the experiment was conducted in a way that the measured pressure sensitivity was not affected by the temperature or by the external refractive index variations.
