ORMOCER coated Fiber-Optic Bragg Grating Sensors at Cryogenic Temperatures
in: IEEE Sensors Journal (2012)
ORMOCER coated Fiber-Bragg-Gratings (FBG) were investigated at cryogenic temperatures. Below T = 40 K the Bragg wavelength of uncoated FBG is nearly independent on temperature. ORMOCER coated FBG are temperature dependent over the whole temperature range investigated from 10 K – 300 K. For 50 K to 300 K the ORMOCER coating contributes to an additional linear temperature shift of the Bragg wavelength of 2.4 pm/K. Below 40 K the temperature dependence decreases to 1.0 pm/K. ORMOCER coated FBGs can be used as sensor at cryogenic temperatures.
