Demountable connection for polymer optical fiber grating sensors


The authors fabricated a demountable Ferrule connector/Physical contact connection between silica fiber and a polymer optical fiber (POF) containing a fiber Bragg grating. The use of a connector for POF grating sensors eliminates the limitations of ultraviolet glued connections and increases the ease with which the devices can be applied to real-world measurement tasks. © 2012 Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
