The Signal Characteristics of the Spectral Response of Bragg Grating Sensor Embedded in Composite Laminated after the Cure Process
The objective of this work was to study, understand and evaluate the effect of different geometric configurations of carbon plies, in the reflected wavelength spectrum of Bragg grating structure together with the effect of the recoating process of the sensor. The different possibilities depend upon the orientation and location of the optical fibre relative to the composite reinforcement orientation and the presence/absence of recoating. The material stacking sequence and the cure conditions were are also studied and the influence of the different possibilities was considered. The optical spectrum response obtained by the interaction of the optical fibre with the host material is shown.
