|Abstract:||A long-period grating (LPG) written on a standard single mode fiber is investigated as a fiber optic sensor for vibration and magnetic field sensing. It is demonstrated the high sensitivity of the device to applied curvature and the possibility to monitor vibration in a wide range of frequencies from 30 Hz to 2000 Hz. The system was tested using intensity-based interrogation scheme, providing a frequency discrimination of 913 mHz. The goal of these tests was to evaluate the sensor as a passive vibration monitor in the detection of changes in resonant vibration frequencies of support infrastructures can provide information on its degradation. Furthermore, taking advantage of the intrinsic sensitivity to micro strain, alternating magnetic fields were also measured using an intensity-based interrogation scheme by coupling a Terfenol-D magnetostrictive rod to a pre-strained LPG sensor, providing a resolution below 5.61 μ T-rms surd Hz from 1.22 mTrms up to 2.53 mTrms.|
