Paper Abstract

Novel FBG sensors based on cladding microstructures are proposed, which include micro-holes array, single or double spiral and straight groove types. Through depositing different sensitive film, the microstructured FBG sensors can be applied to fiber optic magnetic field sensor, hydrogen sensor and humidity sensor. As a developing example, a spiral type microstructured FBG magnetic field sensor is demonstrated. The testing results show that, the sensitivity of the spiral types probe can be promoted 4-6 times more than that of the non-microstructured standard FBG probe. The double spiral probe is better than the single spiral type.
