T103 Fiber Bragg Grating Strain Sensor Array


FBG Shape Tracking of a Dexterous Continuum Manipulator


The T103 Multi Core Fiber (MCF) FBG Array is a Singlemode Multi Core Fiber based Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) Array for commercial use, offered in a four core and seven core fiber.

Available in a wide range of optical specifications. Naturally packaged (written) directly in fiber, these sensors can be used as they are or they can be packaged into a variety of higher level sensors for use in optical sensing systems. Small-size, fast response time and multiple parallel transmission signals. The T103 Multi Core Fiber FBG Array handling and installation is fast,easy and intuitive. Delivers the advantages inherent to FBG based sensors. Immune to EMI.

T103 series FBGs are fabricated using licensed and proprietary state-of-the-art laser manufacturing technologies. Standard in Dual Acrylate coated fiber and ready for OEM packaging upon request.


Key Features

Temperature linearity. The precision FBG array structure written into the fibers’ core for producing the T103 yields a simple transducer configuration
of high resolution, linearity, and measurement repeatability. Hig SLSR and customer specified BW for clear signal processing.

Advanced FBG Inscription Controls. Well suited for projects that include the need to monitor strain and/or temperature at many points along the MCF fiber. The T103 can be provided to customer specifications with FBG Arrays of various lengths and with a flexible number of FBGs. Moreover, the FBGs can be inscribed into all the cores at a physical location, or only on some of the cores. They can also be all with the same wavelength or with all different wavelengths at the same physical location along the multicore fiber.

Multi Core Design Options. The T103 is offered in three main fiber core configurations: square, hexagon plus central core, and
hexagon plus central core spun. Enables simultaneous transmission of different signals in the parallel cores within the same fiber.
