We present thermally regnenerated fiber Bragg grating in air-hole microstructured fibers for high temperature hydrostatic pressure sensing application. Saturated type I gratings were inscribed in hydrogen-loaded two-hole optical fibers using 248-nm KrF laser, and regenerated during annealing at 800°C. The fiber Bragg grating resonance wavelength shift and peak splits were studied as a function of external hydrostatic pressure from 15 psi to 2400 psi. The grating pressure sensor shows stable and reproducible operation up to 800°C. This paper demonstrates a multiplexible pressure sensor network technology for high temperature harsh environment using a single fiber feedthrough. © 2011 SPIE.
