Abstract

The effect of strain upon the fluorescence intensity ratio technique of optical fiber based temperature sensing has been investigated using a series of different Yb3+ and Nd3+ -doped optical fibers. Measurements were conducted with each of the doped fibers for temperatures between approximately 10 and 140°C and for strain values between 50 and 2100 ue. Results suggest that the strain-temperature cross sensitivity for the fluorescence intensity ratio method is minimal, with an applied strain of 1000 ue inducing temperature errors of less than 0.4°C.
