Subject of study. Fiber-optic temperature sensor based on a regenerated fiber Bragg grating. Aim of study. Development of a high temperature sensor based on a regenerated fiber Bragg grating and conducting its temperature study up to a temperature of 1000 оC. Method. The regenerated fiber Bragg grating is obtained by annealing in a high-temperature muffle furnace with a “seed” fiber Bragg grating recorded on hydrogenated optical fiber SMF-28, at a continuously rising temperature from room temperature to 920 оC (regeneration temperature in the case of SMF-28 fiber). The reflection coefficient of the “seed” grating is as close as possible to 100%, the structure length is 15 mm. Heating rate 500 оC/hour. Main results. During the work and temperature studies, which were carried out in the temperature range from +25 to +1000 оC in steps of 100 оC, a fiber-optic temperature sensor was developed based on a regenerated fiber Bragg grating with a reflectance of about 50%, the temperature sensitivity of which was 14,9 pm/оC. Practical significance. The proposed method for manufacturing regenerated fiber Bragg gratings makes it possible to use them as a sensitive element of a temperature sensor. Its ability to operate at such high temperatures opens up wide possibilities for use in a huge range of industrial applications (for example, gas turbine engines, power plants, steel mills, etc.). The simplicity of its implementation makes it possible to obtain a fiber-optic temperature sensor without the use of additional equipment and material costs.
