Paper Abstract

We present the fabrication and characterization of regenerated fiber Bragg gratings (RFBG) in high-birefringence optical fiber for high-temperature sensing. The RFBG presents two Bragg resonances corresponding to the slow and fast axis of the optical fiber. The distance between these two Bragg resonances can be used to reduce the cost of the interrogation unit. Two optical filters are used to convert the wavelength shift due to temperature into optical power changes. The use of modal interferometers for the optical filters simplifies the interrogation setup since they can be easily tuned by strain or temperature.
