Paper Abstract

An optical fiber sensor for simultaneous measurement of axial strain and temperature is reported. This sensor configuration consists of an in-line fiber etalon cascaded with a in-fiber Bragg grating and demultiplexed using a variation of coherence division multiplexing. The strain/temperature sensor is demonstrated by bonding it to the surface of an aluminum cantilever beam and embedding it into a graphite/epoxy composite cantilever beams. They are found to agree with traditional strain and temperature sensors to within 5 (mu) (epsilon) and 0.5 degree(s)C, respectively for a sensor gage length of approximately 1.0 cm.
