A fiber Bragg grating is a small structure that measures few millimeters in length and can be photo etched in the single mode fiber core. Fiber Bragg Grating sensors have been in used for many years in various demanding harsh environmental applications. Fiber Bragg Grating sensors are used as an alternative to traditional mechanical and electrical sensors. FBG sensors are widely used and deployed optical sensors. FBG sensors reflects the wavelength of light that shifts with response to the change or variation in the temperature. FBG sensors are constructed with the use of holographic interference exposing a short length of photosensitive fiber to a regular distribution of light intensity. This periodic pattern generates a Bragg grating acting as a filter due to an interference reflection of some of the incident optical field. The reflecting wavelength of the FBG relies on the grating characteristics such as modulation and the period and is impacted by the parameters such as temperature and strain. Fiber bragg grating technology has been the premium choice for the for optical fiber sensors, specifically in the measurement of the temperature and strain, due to the ease of simple manufacturing and strong reflecting signal.
The major driver that supports the global fiber bragg grating sensor market is the built in calibration artifacts and long lifetime. The other features that contributes to the growth of the fiber bragg grating sensor market is its higher accuracy, compact size, longer stability, protection towards electromagnetic interference (EMI) and its capability to measure ultra-high speed events. One of the restraining factors that restricts the growth of the fiber bragg grating sensors is its thermal and transverse strain sensitivity. However, FBG sensors overcomes various challenges that are associated with the electrical and mechanical sensors by using light and optical fiber instead of using electricity and copper wire. These sensors are electrically passive and non-conductive in nature.
