Paper Abstract

The manufacturing process has a huge impact on the characteristics of the all optical fiber sensors array. By automating the manufacturing of fiber Bragg gratings, FBG arrays with much larger count of sensing points, stronger mechanical strength, tighter optical parameters tolerances and enhanced reliability are produced in a cost effective manner. Such fiber Bragg grating arrays are now commercially available with both acrylate or polyimide coating widening the range of applications for FBG sensors to larger scale of services for strain and temperature in a distributed configuration.
