Deals with the optical responses of fibre Bragg grating (FBG) sensors under different modes of deformation. It derives both the polarisation states and reflection spectra of FBGs based on coupled mode equations by considering the deformation perturbations. It conducts numeric simulations, finds that the experimental results agree well with the simulated ones for normal germano-silicate FBGs under different individual modes of deformations.
