Paper Abstract

An optical fiber sensor system to interrogate point sensors (Bragg gratings) and optical path length between point sensors is discussed. The paper describes interrogation schemes capable of measurement resolutions better than 100 microstrain based on simple optics, telecommunications electronics and sophisticated signal processing.
