Ultrahigh temperature and strain hybrid integrated sensor system based on Raman and femtosecond FBG inscription in a multimode gold-coated fiber.Opt Express. 2019 Dec 23; 27(26):37122-37130.OE
In this paper, a novel approach for hybrid systems combining Raman distributed sensors with fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensors to carry out distributed and quasi-distributed temperature/strain measurements was proposed and experimentally demonstrated. Three FBGs were inscribed by the point-by-point technique in a simple setup for type I femtosecond inscription in a pure silica core multimode gold-coated fiber. Employing a single fiber, temperatures up to 600 °C and strains up to 4144 μɛ approximately were measured simultaneously and without interferences between both distributed and point measurements. Moreover, a new calibration technique was implemented to calibrate the distributed temperature system using the FBG measurements as reference.
