Abstract
Conditions of hydrogen loading were studied for shortening of the exposure time for fabrication of long-period fiber grating sensors using a low-pressure mercury lamp. By an increased hydrogen pressure of 135 atm, shortening of the exposure time to 2/3 that of 120 atm was obtained. By increasing the loading time from 4 to 12 weeks, the exposure time was shortened to 3/4 that of the same pressure, or half that of 120 atm for 3 weeks. The temperature rise of the fiber during exposure was measured to be 16 °C or less. Distribution of hydrogen molecules in the fiber was studied by a numerical analysis solving a diffusion equation. The result of the analysis agreed with the pressure dependence of the measured hydrogen concentration and the exposure time for fabrication. For the longer loading time, neither the calculated nor the measured hydrogen concentrations increased: the shortening of the exposure time by the longer loading time was not explained. The temperature and strain sensitivities were lower than those of hydrogen loading at 120 atm except that a temperature sensitive and strain insensitive long-period grating was obtained with a period of 460 μm.
