Abstract
Temperature-independent strain measurement is achieved resorting to a taper fabricated on a Bragg fibre using a CO2 laser. The characteristic bimodal interference of an untapered Bragg fibre is rendered multimode after taper fabrication and the resulting transmission spectra are analysed as temperature and strain change. The intrinsic strain sensitivity exhibited by the Bragg fibre is increased 15 fold after tapering and reaches 22.68 pm/μepsilon. The difference in wavelength shift promoted by variations in temperature and strain for the two fringes studied is examined and strain sensing with little temperature sensitivity is achieved, presenting a sensitivity of 2.86 pm/μepsilon, for strain values up to 400 μepsilon.
