|Abstract: ||A chirped long period grating (LPG) is used as a directional flow sensor by
monitoring the change in the transmission spectrum upon immersion in an oil of
refractive index higher than that of the fibre cladding. The change in profile
of an attenuation band is shown to depend on the direction of immersion,
indicating the possibility of using such devices in applications such as resin
flow sensing in the manufacture of fibre reinforced plastic composite
