Abstract
A fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor packaged with a thin-wall alloy tube for simultaneous measurement of temperature and pressure is proposed. The influence of the structural parameters on the pressure sensitivity is investigated both numerically and experimentally. Experimental results agree well with the simulations. The pressure sensitivities of 7.8 pm/MPa and temperature sensitivity of 20.1 pm/°C are obtained in the measurement range of 0-60 MPa and 0-150°C, respectively. High repeatability and high linearity of the pressure measurement are confirmed by the experiment. By changing the materials with different elastic modulus, the inner diameter and thickness of the alloy tube, the measuring range and sensitivity of the sensor can be further optimized. The sensing performance of the sensor is also compared with a FBG sensor with another packaging structure. Preliminary results indicates that the sensor has good sensing performance and is promising to be used for long-term pressure sensing in harsh environments.
