Fibre Bragg gratings (FBGs) have emerged in recent years as important sensor elements for various applications. In this communication application of an FBG sensor using a surgical rubber as transducer element for petrol leak detection in pipelines and tanks is presented. The rubber, which is in tubular form and is bonded with the fibre containing FBG, reversibly swells in the presence of petrol thus resulting in Bragg wavelength shift. The shift is measured using an interrogator with a swept fibre laser source (1520-570 nm). The design aspects and experimental procedure along with analysis of results obtained and the potential for distributed sensing have been discussed.
