Abstract

A spatial/wavelength-division multiplexed 3×10 fiber Bragg grating sensor array, acted as the reflector of a ring-cavity fiber laser, was interrogated by employing a 1×3 optical switch and a tunable F-P filter. Demodulation was achieved by using an unbalanced Michelson scanning interferometer that transform the wavelength-shift signal induced by the measured strain into phase-shift signal. The sensor sensitivity of the system was demonstrated to be 1.6817 Deg/με, which agrees with the theoretical value of 1.6843 Deg/με well. A feedback subsystem was introduced to make the system track the measuring channel automatically.
