Paper Abstract

We will demonstrate the potential use of a 2 cm long 6° tilted Bragg grating for simultaneous refractive index and temperature sensing during the production process of sugar from sugarbeets. This sensor is easy to use and allows realtime measurements. Its accuracy falls within ± 0.1 % and ± 1°C for sugar concentration and temperature, respectively.
