Abstract
In this paper we report on the application of over coupled long period fibre gratings (OCLPFGs) for detecting small changes in the surrounding refractive index (SRI). In addition, the optimization of a high RI (HRI) overlay deposited over the fibre for the adhesion of biological species is described. In this study, we utilised a sol-gel-based silica-titania thin film as HRI material deposited on the grating portion using the simple and versatile...
