Abstract

We propose to adopt Fiber Bragg Grating technology to develop an innovative sensor for monitoring relative humidity of the gas fluxed in Resistive Plate Counters. Use of Fiber Bragg Grating as sensing device makes the proposed sensor well suited to develop distributed real-time monitoring systems to be installed on large volume detectors operated in high electromagnetic fields. In fact Fiber Bragg Gratings are fully immune from electromagnetic disturbances and allow simplified wiring by in-series interconnection of tens of them along a single optical fiber. In this paper we present results intended to investigate the feasibility of our proposal. © 2013 IOP Publishing Ltd and Sissa Medialab srl.
