Abstract
In the last decades the fiber Bragg gratings (FBG) and Fabry-Perot Interferometer (FPI) micro cavities based sensors have become one of the most attractive optical fiber sensing technologies. However, its production requires a significant economical investment. We propose a cost effective solution based on micro cavity generated by the recycling of optical fibers destroyed through the catastrophic fuse effect. This technique considerably reduces the experimental complexity and the production costs. In this paper, the application of these sensors in the monitoring of several parameters, such as refractive index, pressure, strain and temperature is presented.
