Paper Abstract

The five of FBG were embedded in the PE sheath of a tether optical cable, which has about 18mm diameter and 7000mm length. The temperature and tension characteristics of the FBGs embedded in the polythene (PE) sheath had been demonstrated quantitatively. The Bragg wavelength of the embedded FBG shift linearly with the change of pulling force loaded on the tether optical cable and its tension sensitivity is about 3.75 pm/kg. The results of temperature experiment suggest the embedded FBG have been sensitized by PE material, so that its temperature sensitivity increase from 9.37pm/°C to about 12.51pm/°C.
