Paper Abstract

In this paper, we report the development of a reduced temperature sensitivity optical fiber sensor for refractive index measurement based on Superimposed Long-Period Gratings (SLPG) inscribed by the electric arc technique in standard fiber. The reduced sensitivity to temperature is achieved by calculation of the difference between resonance wavelengths of two guided cladding modes.
