Polymer FBGs have advantages for sensing because of low Young's modulus, high temperature sensitivity, large strain range and so on. They are attractive for many niche applications such as structural health monitoring of composite materials, biochemical and biomedical sensing. While polymer FBGs have been developed for some time, polymer microfibre Bragg gratings are developed only recently and have shown to introduce some interesting features, e.g. increased pressure sensitivity to pressure / force and improved response time to humidity. We will report and discuss the recent work on polymer FBG and polymer microfibre Bragg gratings as well as their applications such as accelerometer, humidity sensor and force and pressure sensor. © 2015 OSA.
