The sensor is based on an optical fibre extrinsic Fabry Perot interferometer (EFPI) combined with a Fibre Bragg Grating (FBG). The EFPI provides pressure measurements while the Fibre Bragg Grating (FBG) provides temperature measurements. The FGB is post-inscribed into the EFPI using a femtosecond laser. The sensor is mechanically robust, corrosion resistant and suitable for use underwater. The combined pressure and temperature sensor system was mounted on-board a mini remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) in order to monitor the pressure changes at varying depths and compare with the reference pressure-depth sensor. The reflected optical spectrum of the sensor was monitored online and a pressure change caused a corresponding observable shift in the optical spectrum. The sensor exhibited excellent stability when measured over a 2 hour period underwater and its performance is compared with a commercially available reference sensor also mounted on the ROV. The comparison illustrates that the EFPI/FBG sensor is more accurate (∼0.025m) with a resolution of ∼0.005m, when compared to the reference sensor.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/9841||Rights:||© 2014 IEEE.|
