Chirped fibre Bragg grating optical wear sensor

Gillooly, A.M., Chisholm, K.E., Zhang, L. and Bennion, I. (2004). Chirped fibre Bragg grating optical wear sensor. Measurement Science and Technology, 15 (5), pp. 885-888.


A novel sensor is demonstrated to allow a real-time measurement of the physical wear applied to the surface of an object. Two different measurement methods are presented, both utilizing the reflected power from a sacrificial chirped fibre Bragg grating to give the wear measurement. The measurement systems are simple to implement with the possibility of low cost designs depending on the application. The sensor can measure wear with a resolution of 120 μm. © 2004 IOP Publishing Ltd.
