Paper Abstract

A sensor for simultaneous measurements of strain, temperature and refractive index (RI) is proposed. The device is based on a single 8º tilted fiber Bragg grating (TFBG). Monitoring the core mode and ghost mode wavelength, it is possible to discriminate strain and temperature. The RI measurement is obtained through computation of the transmission spectrum area. Resolutions up to 4 με, 3.1 ºC and 5.7 x10-4 were achieved. The present sensor can be an important tool in the sensing field.
