Temperature insensitive long-period grating sensors in photonic crystal fibre


Presented are long-period gratings (LPGs) fabricated in pure silica photonic crystal fibre (PCF) using an electric arc. Two different varieties of PCF have been investigated, an endlessly single mode PCF and a large-mode area PCF. The LPGs have been characterised for their sensitivity to a variety of external measurands. The LPGs in both fibres have been found to have negligible temperature sensitivity whilst exhibiting good sensitivity to bending and strain.
