Development of a photonic gauging sensor for hazardous liquids


Previous papers have described the use of a Long Period Grating (LPG) as a simple photonic level sensor. We show how a useful performance of 1 mm resolution over 1 m could be obtained in a system that requires only a low-cost interrogator rather than an Optical Spectrum Analyzer.
