Tapered fibre LPG device as a sensing element for refractive index

Thomas D.P. Allsop, Filip Floreani, K.P. Jedrzejewski, Rosa Romero, Paulo Marques, David J. Webb, Ian Bennion

Research output: Chapter in Book/Published conference outputConference publication


The fabrication and characterisation of Long Period Gratings in fibre tapers is presented alongside supporting theory. The devices possess a high sensitivity to the index of aqueous solutions due to an observed spectral bifurcation effect.
