Paper Abstract

In this work, the transverse stress response of fiber Bragg gratings in large-mode-area micro-structured Panda-type fibers is numerically investigated. The grating wavelength shifts are studied as a function of external load and loading angle. Simulation results indicate that introducing air holes in the fiber reduces the nonlinear response of the grating to transverse stress. Furthermore, it is feasible to achieve the same sensitivity of gratings written in conventional Panda fibers, focusing the stress into the fiber core.
