A low loss perfluorinated fibre and a femtosecond- laser, direct-write method to inscribe gratings at two different wavelengths are used. Gratings are fabricated to operate at ∼800 nm, where the optical loss is minimal, and in the C-band, commonly used with traditional optical fibres for the majority of telecommunication applications. The development of POF Bragg gratings inscribed in long fibre lengths is the first important step for the integration of practical sensing devices and could promote the use of multiplexed POF sensors. The sensors were tested and characterised and demonstrate their compatibility with a commercial Bragg grating demodulator.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/9336||ISSN:||00135194||Rights:||© The Institution of Engineering and Technology 2016.||Type:||Article|
