Paper Abstract

Fiber Bragg gratings (FBG) were inscribed in single crystalline sapphire fibers by fs-laser irradiation. Due to the used multi-mode air clad fiber a sapphire-FBG spectra showa a wide asymmetric peak with a half width of 7 nm. Different mathematical peak functions were tested to determine a fiber Bragg wavelength. It was shown that the shift of the calculated Bragg wavelengths in dependence on temperature is identical for the different peak functions. The determination of the fiber Bragg wavelength shift with a resolution of 10pm allows temperature measurements within an accuracy of ±1°C in the temperature range up to 1500°C. Sapphire FBG were used to measure the temperature distribution and thermal fluctuations within an inductive heated furnace in the range from 100°C to 1500°C.
