Paper Abstract

Optical temperature compensation schemes for the ratiometric interrogation of spectral modulation sensors for source temperature robustness are presented. We have obtained better than 50 - 100X decrease of the temperature coefficient of the sensitivity using these types of compensation. We have also developed a spectrographic interrogation scheme that provides increased source temperature robustness; this affords a significantly improved accuracy over FADEC temperature ranges as well as temperature coefficient of the sensitivity that is substantially and further reduced. This latter compensation scheme can be integrated in a small E/O package including the detection, analog and digital signal processing. We find that these interrogation schemes can be used within a detector spatially multiplexed architecture.
