Paper Abstract

This paper focuses on optical fiber laser-based wide range temperature measurement applications, under circumstances where different strain values were applied to the chirped fiber Bragg grating at a fixed temperature and the uniform type IIA fiber Bragg grating was used temperature-tuned. This grating forms the end reflector in the laser cavity feedback configuration. Erbium doped fiber was used as the laser gain medium and was pumped by using light from a 1480 nm laser diode. The response of the sensor was achieved over the tunable-temperature range from 70°C to 500°C when a fixed strain value of 1000 με was applied to the chirped Bragg grating, with a root mean square error of 10°C, using linear fitting over the above measurement range.
