Strain response of POF sensors

Abang, Ada, Webb, David J. and Peng, Gang-Ding (2012). Strain response of POF sensors. IN: OFS2012 22nd international conference on Optical Fiber Sensors. Liao, Yanbiao; Jin, Wei; Sampson, David D. and et al, (eds) SPIE proceedings . Bellingham, WA (US): SPIE.


With regard to polymer fibre Bragg gratings, we investigate one of the consequences of the visco-elastic nature of the constituent polymer: hysteresis in the response of wavelength shift vs sensor elongation. We show that when a grating sensor is directly bonded to a substrate, the hysteresis is reduced by a factor of 10 from the case where the sensor is freely suspended between two supports.
