This thesis describes the study of the temperature and strain effects on rare earth fluorescence and Bragg gratings in optical fibres. The development and performance of simultaneous temperature and strain measurement systems utilising a combined technique of the fluorescence intensity ratio and the Bragg wavelength shift are investigated.
