Paper Abstract

A Fiber Bragg Gratings(FBG) have been used as a sensor head for measurement of temperature and static strain. However, a standard FBG sensor, which is constructed on single-mode fiber, cannot simultaneously measure both temperature and static strain since the sensor has cross-sensitivity between them. The cross-sensitivity problem can be solved by using an FBG constructed on a polarization maintaining fiber(PM-FBG) instead of a standard FBG. In this paper, we report improvement on the sensing resolution for the simultaneous measurement of temperature and static strain. An Fabry-Perot interferometer constructed with PM-FBG(PM-FBG-FPI) is introduced as a sensor head. The fine structure of an PM-FBG-FPI reflection spectrum enables high resolution detection of wavelength shifts. The resulting high resolution measurement is demonstrated experimentally.
