We propose a temperature sensor based on dispersion shifted long period fiber grating (LPFG) fabricated with the fattening method, using electric arc discharges from a commercial fusion splicer machine. The fattened LPFG are centered at 1524 and 1550 nm, respectively. A temperature characterization in terms of the transmitted spectrum is realized with a pumped Er+3 doped fiber as the light source. The less than 3 mm in length fattened LPFG reached a sensitivity of 72 pm/°C between a temperature range of (25-500°C). Temperature stability was observed among the temperature range of (25-200°C), result in agreement with our previous studies. From up to 200°C sensing is observed as temperature increases. To apply this LPFG as a temperature sensor, sensing was measured as voltage signal outputs with repeatable results. This sensor is a high temperature resistant device because non deterioration of its properties was observed, and can find useful applications when temperature stability may be needed or the sensing requirements are desirable.
