Abstract

In this paper, the response of a graphene oxide (GO) coated long period grating (LPG) to the change in temperature and in humidity is reported. To create the probe, an improved Hummer's method was used to synthesis the GO solution used as its basis, allowing coating of functionalized LPG by using a multi-layer dip coating technique. A consistent and stable response of the resonance peak intensity of the GO coated LPG was observed to the change in humidity, achieving a sensitivity of 0.15 dB / %RH with a linear correlation coefficient of 0.9804 over the relative humidity range from 60%RH to 95%RH at room temperature (25 °C). A blue shift of the resonance peak wavelength was recorded when the proposed sensor was exposed to varying temperature conditions from 25 °C to 70 °C and the response was found to be linear with a correlation coefficient of 0.9973. The GO coated LPG humidity sensor probe performed with a good stability and repeatability over a number of test cycles in this initial performance evaluation.
