Optical sensing systems has a not weakening research and development in recent years. Because of its unique properties of being unsusceptible to electromagnetic interference, having wide range of operational temperature and having extreme small physical dimensions, optical fiber sensors has increasing acceptance. Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBG) is the most frequently used type of optical sensor types because of its huge multiplexing potential and potentiality of being embedded into composite material (e.g. in structural health monitoring) or attached into measured structure. Embedding or attaching FBG into an inhomogeneous environment, spectral characteristic of the sensing grating do not retain full symmetry, which is due to related differences in the distribution of the axial stress of the grating. When periodicity of the grating is constant, the peak of FBG reflection spectrum should be narrow and sharp. An inhomogeneous axial strain distribution will cause a distorsion in measured transmission or reflection spectrum. This paper shows an distorsions in FBG reflection spectrum measured from sensor attached on surface with welded joint. The sensor strain-to-wavelength shift processing characteristics obtained for homogeneous and welded steel samples were compared.
