Paper Abstract

The effects of the fabrication procedure for fibre Bragg gratings (FBG) on the mechanical properties of fibres were investigated by dynamic fatigue tests in two-point bending in a “wet” environment. The results show that both chemical stripping and continuous wave UV irradiation reduced the mechanical resistance of the fibre.
