In this work, the numerical and experimental analysis on the use of thinned fiber Bragg gratings as refractive index sensors have been carried out. Wet chemical etching in a buffered hydrofluoric acid solution was used for sensor fabrication. Experimental characterization for an almost full etched cladding sensor is presented demonstrating good agreement with numerical results and resolutions of 10 5 and 10 4 for outer refractive index around 1.45 and 1.333, respectively.
