Abstract

We demonstrate the packaging of CO2 laser written long-period fiber gratings (LPFGs) using different polymer materials. We use three different silicone rubber polymers to package the LPFGs by simply coating it outside the grating. After the polymer coating, the resonance wavelength of LPFG was found to shift towards shorter wavelength by about 6 nm, and the temperature sensitivity of the packaged gratings was studied experimentally. Experiments showed that the gratings packaged by different polymers have different temperature characteristics and all of them have good thermal stability.
