Modelling optical fiber for LPGFS systems

A reliable and consistent model of the optical fiber intended to be used in Long Period Grating Fiber Sensors design is proposed. The model uses mechanical and optical parameters either specified by the manufacturer or calculated from specified parameters. Two different approaches were used, as some parameters or others are known. The method was tested on optical fibers of two major manufacturers, the resulting models being in a good concordance with given specifications. This optical fiber modelling method provides a very useful and powerful tool for Long Period Grating Fiber Sensors designers..
