DREYER, Uilian et al. A technique to package Fiber Bragg Grating Sensors for Strain and Temperature Measurements. J. Microw. Optoelectron. Electromagn. Appl. [online]. 2013, vol.12, n.2, pp.638-646. ISSN 2179-1074.

This paper reports an effective method of packaging a fiber Bragg grating (FBG) for the simultaneous measurement of temperature and strain. The technique consists of embedding two fiber Bragg grating sensors inside a polymeric material with different geometrical characteristics. The mechanical and thermal characterizations of the optical transducer were performed. Then a matrix equation used measurements of the wavelength shifts from the two sensors and yielded information about the temperature and strain coefficients. The preliminary results demonstrate the feasibility of the encapsulation technique allowing measurements of temperature and strain in smart structures and harsh environments. The experimental procedure provides robustness to the sensor and the matrix equation approach has the potential to determine simultaneously the strain and temperature coefficients.

Palavras-chave : Fiber Bragg gratings; packaging; strain and temperature measurement.
