This impacts the performance of grating structures, which offer wavelength encoded sensing information. We undertake a study on different air hole geometries and proceed with characterization of fibre Bragg and long period gratings, FBG and LPG, respectively that have been inscribed (using either a femtosecond or ultraviolet laser system) within different designs of microstructured fibre that are of interest for sensing applications||ISBN:||978-081949118-3||ISSN:||0277-786X||DOI:||10.1117/12.925662||Rights:||© (2012) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).||Type:||Conference Papers|
