Abstract
Fibre Bragg gratings (FBGs) are strain sensors that can be embedded into composite materials, without affecting their mechanical performances. In this study, we report the use of a short and weakly tilted FBG inscribed in a single mode highly germanium doped photosensitive optical fibre to discriminate, with a good spatial resolution, strain and temperature effects for structural health monitoring (SHM) application. The transmission spectrum of a weakly tilted FBG (TFBG) presents three regions of interest: the Bragg resonance, the ghost mode resonance and all other cladding mode resonances that are not exploited in this work. We make use of the differential temperature sensitivity of the Bragg mode and the ghost mode to discriminate between temperature and strain effects inside composite materials.
