Paper Abstract

A temperature and strain optical fiber transducer and its optimal design are presented. The hybrid structure is composed of two Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBG) in a fused taper. Using the same phase mask one of the FBG is written outside of the taper, and the other one in the middle of the taper, in the area with constant diameter. The taper diameter and the structure length play a key role on the transducer behaviour. Useful results to optimize the transducer structure design, from a theoretical and experimental investigation, are reported in this paper.
