Fiber Bragg gratings engraved in standard telecommunications-grade single-mode fibers without previous hydrogen loading show enhanced thermal stability for high-temperature measurements up to 800 ° C . The reflectivity decay at that temperature is adequate for industrial applications with a weekly change of sensing heads.
