Experimental tests have been conducted to investigate the ultrasonic consolidation process of fiber optics inside Aluminum. It allows surface embedding of fiber Bragg grating (FBG) to protect them from exposure to open environment. This particular process requests small amount of heat created at the contact interface to embed the fibers. Extensive experiments were carried out to understand the process of ultrasonic consolidation and the effect of its related parameters such as waves amplitude and welding time on the process with a selected host material e.g. aluminum. The ultrasonic frequency was kept constant throughout the tests.
