German term or phrase: Bragg-Gitter
is this a Bragg grating sensor - as I have in my suggested translation??

Eine mit dem Sensorelement mechanisch verbundene optische Faser enthaelt wenigstens ein Bragg-Gitter, an dem ien Sendelichtsignal einer Lichtquelle durch die Einwirkung der Komponente des elektrischen Feldes beeinflusst wird.

Bragg grating sensor

According to this bilingual site, you're right.

Faser-Bragg-Gitter und Gitter mit großer Gitterkonstante können mit Hilfe von Newport’s fotoempfindlichen Fasern erzeugt werden, indem diese Fasern periodischen UV-Licht-Intensitätsmustern ausgesetzt werden. Diese Gitter bilden die Basis für Bauteile wie wellenlängenselektive Filter, schmalbandige Spiegel oder Sensoren.

Fiber Bragg gratings and long period gratings can be constructed using Newport’s photosensitive fibers by exposing these fibers to periodic patterns of UV light. Such gratings can form the basis of devices such as wavelength-selective filters, narrow-band mirrors or sensors.

I've decided to go for Bragg-grating in the end! Thanks
