The use of optical fiber Bragg grating to measure acceleration was described. Fiber Bragg gratings were formed by generating a permanent periodic modulation of the fiber's core refractive index using an ultraviolet laser with a wavelength around 248 nm. The grating spectra and output optical power was measured for different static displacements of the cantilever end. It was found that the output signal variation do not exceed 5mV between -20°C to 40°C.
