In this paper we describe the testing of a prototype of an innovative displacement gauge, based on use of Fibre Bragg Grating (FBG) sensors. This displacement gauge, originally intended for monitoring repositioning of pixel vertex detectors in the BTeV experiment, is now proposed for CMS pixel alignment. © 2007 Elsevier B.V.
