Abstract
This paper presents a comparative study of the behaviour of different kinds of optical fibre sensors in response to high temperatures. It compares the performance of regenerated fibre Bragg gratings (FBGs) written in hydrogen-loaded and non-loaded fibres with long period gratings (LPGs) written through the two different processes of ultraviolet (UV) irradiation and electrical arc discharges. This work shows the importance of the use of hydrogen-loaded fibres to achieve regenerated FBGs capable of withstanding high temperatures as high as 955°C. In addition, the results demonstrated that LPGs recorded by electric arc discharges have higher thermal resistance than LPGs written by UV radiation.
