Abstract

We have proposed and experimentally demonstrated a novel optical fiber sensor for simultaneous measurement of high temperature and gas pressure based on a Regenerated Fiber Bragg grating (RFBG) cascaded with a homemade hollow core Bragg fiber (HCBF). The HCBF functions as an anti-resonant reflecting waveguide and acts as a pressure and temperature sensing unit. The sample was fabricated and tested in our lab, exhibiting a high linear pressure and temperature sensitivity of -3.747 nm/MPa and 25.925 pm/°C in a large-dynamic range of 2 MPa and 600 °C, respectively. The RFBG, as a temperature monitor, was integrated to compensate the temperature cross-correspondence of the HCBF. By utilizing a 2 × 2 matrix obtained with the experimental results, simultaneous measurement of temperature and gas pressure can be achieved. Besides, compact size, low cost and high sensitivity make the sensor more competitive in harsh environment application.
