Paper Abstract

The design of a polyimide film packaged hybrid fiber sensor for simultaneous strain and temperature measurement is presented. This hybrid sensor operates in the intensity domain by converting the polarization and wavelength information from a polarization maintaining photonic crystal fiber (PM-PCF) sensor and fiber Bragg grating sensor (FBG) respectively into intensity variations. The strain sensitivity of a polarimetric sensor for various lengths of the PM-PCF is studied. The effective strain sensitivity of the FBG sensing system is adjusted to match that of the polarimetric sensor by varying the slope of the edge filter. The packaging aspects of the hybrid fiber sensor are also presented in this paper.
