This study presents the modelling, simulation, and characterization of the Fiber Bragg grating (FBG) on maximum reflectivity, bandwidth, the effect of applied strain to the wavelength shift, ʎB and sensitivity of the wavelength shift with strain for optical sensing system. In this study, a commercial FBG with the center wavelength of 1550nm is used in order to measure the spectral response of FBG to strain. The parameters used in these simulations are the fiber grating length, L ranging from 1 to 10mm, the changes in refractive index, ∆n from 0.0002 to 0.0020, the effective refractive index, is 1.46 and the grating period of FBG,Λ for 530nm in the performance of FBG. The bandwidth and spectrum reflectivity are analyzed from the variation of refractive index and grating length. Simulations on the FBG are carried out using OriginPro 2016 and Microsoft Excel 2010 software. The Excel sheet is used to generate data and the OriginPro 2016 is used to generate the graphs. The results obtained indicates the variation in grating length and refractive index affect the spectral reflectivity and the bandwidth. In addition, results obtained show that the changes in the Bragg wavelength are due to an increase in length of the grating region which due to the applied strain.
