Paper Abstract

The characterization of fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensors integrated on 2D and 3D mesh structures is presented. Several materials and configurations were tested, namely cork, foams, PVC, hexagonal 3D. Sensors were embedded between two substrates using textile lamination technique. Every sample was subjected to temperature variations and mechanical deformations. Through Bragg wavelength monitoring, thermal, deformation and pressure performance were evaluated. These results provide significant information to the conception of smart textiles.
