Zhang, Wei, Grice, Steven, Sugden, Kate and Bennion, Ian (2011). Free water in fuel sensor using fiber long period grating. IN: 21st international conference on optical fiber sensors. Bock, Wojtek J.; Albert, Jacques and Bao, Xiaoyi (eds) SPIE proceedings, 7753 . CAN: SPIE.


A fiber optic free water in fuel (WIF) sensor is proposed by utilizing a long period fiber grating (LPFG). The existence of free water in fuel is indicated by the appearance of a characteristic loss band. The free water level in fuel can be determined by measuring the transmissions of two characteristic loss bands.
