Abstract

The strain sensitivity of the fluorescence intensity ratio temperature-sensing technique has been measured to be (2 ± 3) × 10-4%/με in Yb3+-doped fiber, implying a temperature-to-strain cross sensitivity of (2 ± 3) × 10-4 °C/με. The near-zero strain sensitivity means that this optical-fiber sensor technique is well suited for temperature measurement in strain-affected environments.
