A fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor was fixed on the uniform strength beam with three adhesives, which were
modified acrylate, glass glue and epoxy resin. The influence of adhesive on FBG strain sensor was investigated. The
strain of FBG sensor was varied by loading weight to the uniform strength beam. The wavelength shift of the FBG
sensor fixed by the three kinds of adhesive were measured with different weight at the temperatures 0°C, 10°C, 20°C,
30°C, 40°C. The linearity, sensitivity and their stability at different temperature of FBG sensor which fixed by every kind
of adhesives were analyzed. The results show that, the FBG sensor fixed by the modified acrylate has a high linearity,
and the linear correlation coefficient is 0.9996. It also has a high sensitivity which is 0.251nm/kg. The linearity and the
sensitivity of the FBG sensor have a high stability at different temperatures. The FBG sensor fixed by the glass glue also
has a high linearity, and the linear correlation coefficient is 0.9986, but it has a low sensitivity which is only 0.041nm/kg.
The linearity and the sensitivity of the FBG sensor fixed by the glass glue have a high stability at different temperatures.
When the FBG sensor is fixed by epoxy resin, the sensitivity and linearity is affected significantly by the temperature.
When the temperature changes from 0°C to 40°C, the sensitivity decreases from 0.302nm/kg to 0.058nm/kg, and the
linear correlation coefficient decreases from 0.9999 to 0.9961.
