Abstract

A long-period fiber-grating sensor with a high strain sensitivity of 7.6 pm μ ε and a low temperature sensitivity of 3.91 pm ° C is fabricated by use of focused CO 2 laser beam to carve periodic grooves on a large- mode-area photonic crystal fiber. Such a strain sensor can effectively reduce the cross-sensitivity between strain and temperature, and the temperature-induced strain error obtained is only 0.5 μ ε ° C without using temperature compensation.
