Grating devices in polymer optical fiber (POFs) have attracted interest due to varies potential applications in recent years. This chapter presents the state of art about the fabrication technology of grating devices in different kinds of POFs and explores potential sensing application scenarios, focus on the fabrication of chirped POF FBG devices and the potential application of such devices. Present several typical applications with uniform POF FBG. Also present several typical applications based on Chirped POF FBG, which indicate POF FBG shown promising in the sensing area with show higher sensitivity and bio-compatibility than silica ones, and special grating in POF are attractive for future biomedical applications.
