What Are Fiber Bragg Gratings?
Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBGs) are optical interference filters that are inscribed into optical fibers with UV light. FBG sensors consist of an optical fiber containing a series of microscopic gratings. The gratings reflect a specific wavelength of light while allowing other wavelengths to pass through. By analyzing changes in the pattern of the reflected light, […]
