Abstract
We present the measurement of the temperature variation along a fiber Bragg grating (FBG) written in a photosensitive fiber, using azimuthal whispering gallery modes (WGM) resonances of the fiber itself. The FBG is regarded as a cylindrical microresonator, in which the azimuthal WGM resonances are excited with an auxiliary 2 μm taper. The wavelengths of the WGM resonances shift as the temperature of the grating increases at a given point. The temperature profile along the FBG is obtained by monitoring the WGM resonances at different points, as a function of the power and wavelength of the optical signal. Our experiments give useful information to study the small absorption changes produces by the standard UV photo-inscription technique and the thermally induced chirping effects generated when FBGs are used with moderate power levels.
