Paper Abstract

A temperature-insensitive 2-D inclinometer by incorporating two fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) with a homogeneous pendulum transducer is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. The two FBGs are located in two orthogonal planes of the pendulum and only half of each FBG is glued on the surface of the columnar rod. Due to the strain difference between glued- and non-glued part of each FBG, the reflection spectrum of each FBG splits into two peaks. The direction and magnitude of inclination can be readily determined by measuring the wavelength separations of the split peak in two FBGs, whilst the temperature-induced cross-sensitivity is eliminated. A sensitivity of 0.047 nm/° with an accuracy of 0.23° is achieved within the tilt angle range of -20°–+20°.
