Bremer, K., Wollweber, M., Guenther, S. , Werner, G., Sun, T., Grattan, K. T. V. & Roth, B. (2014). Fibre optic humidity sensor designed for highly alkaline environments. Proceedings of SPIE - The International Society for Optical Engineering, 9157, article number 9157A4. doi: 10.1117/12.2059637


This paper presents the design of a sensor packaging for a Fibre Bragg Grating (FBG) based fibre optic humidity sensor. The evaluation of the developed fibre optic sensor was performed under experimental conditions and verified its capability to withstand highly alkaline environments. Therefore, the sensor can be applied to monitor the concrete humidity level and thus to indicate the maintenance of concrete structures.
