The idea of Bragg gratings, generated during the drawing process of a fiber dated back almost 20 years ago. The technical improvement of the DTG process results today in high reliable and cost effective Bragg gratings for versatile application in the optical fiber sensor market. Due to the single pulse exposure of the fiber, the gratings behave typically like type I gratings with respect to their temperature stability. This means that such gratings only work up to temperatures lower than 300 °C. To increase temperature stability we combined DTG arrays with hydrogen loading and a thermal regeneration process which enables their use in high temperature environment. The regenerated draw tower gratings are suitable for temperatures up to 900°C.
