In this work we tested use of thin film aluminium coating to enhance the temperature sensing features of FBG sensors. Thin film coating was evaporated on the Bragg grating after removal of the original acrylate recoating, using a modified vacuum evaporation system that allows uniform radial deposition around the fibre. Results show that recoating thickness up to 0.5 μm do not produce appreciable effects, whereas thickness of 2.3 μm appreciably increases temperature sensitivity without increasing time response constant. © 2013 SPIE.

Abstract

In this work we tested use of thin film aluminium coating to enhance the temperature sensing features of FBG sensors. Thin film coating was evaporated on the Bragg grating after removal of the original acrylate recoating, using a modified vacuum evaporation system that allows uniform radial deposition around the fibre. Results show that recoating thickness up to 0.5 μm do not produce appreciable effects, whereas thickness of 2.3 μm appreciably increases temperature sensitivity without increasing time response constant. © 2013 SPIE.
