FBG inscribed on splice joint is proposed to be used as a sensor. It could realize temperature and strain measurement simultaneously because of the different strain responses of the different parts of the FBG inscribed on splice joint, while the temperature responses are same. The strain responses of four overlap values are discussed, which is used to optimize the discrimination capability of the strain and temperature response of the FBG device.
Fiber Bragg grating(FBG) written in rotated fused polarization maintaining(RF-PM) fiber is proposed. The fiber structure constructs two Fabry-Perot interferometers. The spectral characteristics is analyzed and simulated. The Bragg reflection spectrum of fiber subjected to different loading angles are measured as the rotated fused angle is 22.5°. The experimental results show that the asymmetrical fiber structure can measure transverse stress and discriminate its direction.
