Abstract

We report an investigation of the dependence of the temperature and strain coefficients on the grating type for fiber Bragg gratings that are UV inscribed in B/Ge-codoped fiber with and without hydrogenation. The results reveal that all types of grating exhibit similar strain sensitivities but markedly different temperature sensitivities, greater for gratings inscribed in hydrogen-free rather than hydrogenated fiber and substantially less in type IA gratings than all others. The sensitivity characteristics of these gratings have been used to implement a new type of dual-grating sensor for simultaneous measurement of temperature and strain that has properties superior to those of previously reported structures.
