Gillooly, Andrew M., Dobb, Helen, Zhang, Lin and Bennion, Ian Distributed load sensor by use of a chirped moiré fiber Bragg grating. Applied Optics, 43 (35), pp. 6454-6457.


A chirped moiré fiber Bragg grating has been demonstrated to be capable of measuring the magnitude, position, and footprint of a transverse load. The device provides an average spatial resolution of 164 μm and has a load accuracy of 0.15 N/mm, or 50 με. © 2004 Optical Society of America.
