Paper Abstract

The response of transmission spectrum of cascaded long period gratings with hydrogel coating to relative humidity is investigated experimentally. Two configurations in terms of coated/not coated areas of the cascaded LPGs are explored to gain a significant enhancement of RH sensitivity. For humidity level greater than 50%RH, the visibility of the interference fringes is highly sensitive to relative humidity, showing a good linearity. The sensitivities of the two proposed hydrogel coated cascaded LPGs devices are 7.71 × 10-3/%RH and 7.08 × 10-3/%RH, respectively. RH accuracies of ± 0.45% and ± 0.32% are achieved, respectively.
