Abstract

A novel and simple fiber-optic sensor based on a superstructure fiber grating for simultaneous measurement of temperature, axial strain, and transverse load is proposed and demonstrated. By measurement of the shift and split of broadband and narrow-band loss peaks, one can determine the temperature, axial strain, and transverse load simultaneously over the ranges 0–140°, 01200 μϵ, and 0–0.3  kg/mm, respectively.
