Paper Abstract

Optical fiber technology is considered now for communication and sensing applications in various radiation environments, like space and nuclear industry. We report on results from an on-going experimental program, which aims at using multiplexed Fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs), essential photonic components, for in-pile temperature monitoring in a nuclear reactor. To the best of our knowledge, it is the first time that multiplexed FBG-sensors are used in such conditions.
