FBG fabrication and thermal characterization of a silica/silicone hybrid microstructured optical fiber is demonstrated. The thin film of PDMS created on the inner surface of the microstructured optical fiber acts as the cladding. The measured temperature sensitivity is-110.9 pm/°C. Bragg wavelength of the FBG is tuned through UV irradiation and the thermal effect is further explored.
