Abstract—This paper present the modeling and simulation of the hydrogel coated FBG for pH sensor application. The hydrogel swelling was modeled by using Poisson-Nernst-Planck equation and mechanical equilibrium equation. The simulation was done by assuming that the hydrogel was coated on unetched fiber and etched fiber. The strain induced at the fiber core was analyzed using finite element method. It was found that at the region near the jacketed fiber, the strain is distributed nonuniformly. The non uniform area for etched fiber is shorter than that of unetched fiber. The Bragg wavelength shift due to strain of the etched fiber is much larger than that of the unetched fiber.

Index Terms—Optical pH sensor, fiber bragg grating, Hydrogel, strain.
