Optical fibre sensor for high pressure measurement using an in-fibre grating

Xu, M.G., Reekie, L., Chow, Y.T. and Dakin, J.P. (1993) Optical fibre sensor for high pressure measurement using an in-fibre grating At 9th Optical Fibre Sensors Conference (OFS-9), Italy. 04 - 06 May 1993.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


A fibre optic sensor for monitoring high pressures, using an in-fibre grating, has been constructed. The method involves tracking the wavelength of peak reflection from an in-fibre grating as it is pressurised. Experimental trials, under the influence of hydraulic pressure, have been carried out and a wavelength shift of 0.22 nm at 70 MPa pressure was observed. The sensor should be an attractive choice for ultra-high pressure monitoring
