Paper Abstract

Structural Long period gratings (LPGs) in photonic crystal fiber (PCF) were successfully fabricated using the femtosecond laser micromachining system by introducing periodic side-holes. High temperature characterizations of the fabricated gratings have been performed. The structural gratings written with the femtosecond laser micromachining technique can suffer a low shift of the resonance wavelengths with sensitivity of 23pm/oC while the temperature is increased from 20°C to 1200°C. The LPGs have been found to have negligible temperature sensitivity whilst exhibiting useful strain (-1.86pm/με)and strong directional bend sensitivity with -4.40nm•m (180°) and -2.79nm•m (0°) at low temperature. The unique sensing characteristics enable many potential sensing applications in high temperature environments, such as space aircraft, nuclear power plants, and the chemical industry.
