Abstract

We present fiber Bragg grating pressure sensors in air-hole microstructured fibers for high-temperature operation above 800 ° C . An ultrafast laser was used to inscribe Type II grating in two-hole optical fibers. The fiber Bragg grating resonance wavelength shift and peak splits were studied as a function of external hydrostatic pressure from 15 psi to 2000 psi . The grating pressure sensor shows stable and reproducible operation above 800 ° C . We demonstrate a multiplexible pressure sensor technology for a high-temperature environment using a single fiber and a single-fiber feedthrough.
