This paper presents fiber optical gas sensors based on nano-porous metal oxide functional materials for high-temperature energy applications. A solution-based approach was used to produce nano-porous functional metal oxide and their dopant variants as sensing films, which was integrated on high-temperature stable FBGs in D-shaped silica fibers and sapphire fibers. The Bragg grating peaks were used to monitor the refractive index change and optical absorption loss due to the redox reaction between Pd-doped TiO2 and hydrogen from the room temperature to 800°C. The experimental results show the sensor's response is reversible for hydrogen concentration between 0.1 vol.% to 5 vol. %. The response time of the hydrogen sensor is <8s.
