Abstract

For the first time to the authors’ knowledge, fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) with > 80 ° tilted structures have been fabricated and characterized. Their performance in sensing temperature, strain, and the surrounding medium’s refractive index was investigated. In comparison with normal FBGs and long-period gratings (LPGs), > 80 ° tilted FBGs exhibit significantly higher refractive-index responsivity and lower thermal cross sensitivity. When the grating sensor was used to detect changes in refractive index, a responsivity as high as 340 nm /refractive-index unit near an index of 1.33 was demonstrated, which is three times higher than that of conventional LPGs.
