Title: H2 sensing based on a Pd-coated tapered-FBG fabricated by DUV femtosecond laser technique
Issue Date: 2013
Abstract: An optical fiber probe sensor based on a tapered-fiber Bragg grating (FBG) coated with 150-nm-thick Pd film is proposed for hydrogen detection. The FBG was written in a 50-mu m-diameter tapered fiber by deep ultraviolet femtosecond laser technology. A second FBG was inscribed in the 125 mu m-fiber section for temperature compensation. The sensing head was able to detect H-2 concentration in the range 0%-1% (v/v) H-2 at room temperature; a maximum sensitivity of 81.8 pm/%(v/v) H-2 was attained with temperature compensation. The influence of the Pd coating over temperature sensitivity of standard and tapered-FBGs is also presented.
