Abstract
In this paper, we carry out a periodically taper experiment on standard single-mode optical fiber by electro-thermal fused taper system, and fabricate a long period fiber grating (LPFG). The resonance amplitude of the LPFG is -23dB. Then we have an experimental study about axial strain characteristics of the LPFG. In the axial stretching process of the grating, the period of the grating become larger, the diameter become smaller, and because of the photo-elastic effect, the refractive index of the core and the optical cladding change. Experimental results show that the resonant wavelength peak position of the LPFG had a good linear relationship with the axial strain. With the increase of axial strain, the resonance wavelength shift to short and the sensitivity is about -1.40pm/μepsilon.
