Paper Abstract

A quasi-distributed sensor system based on optical frequency domain reflectometry where the sensing points were identical, low-reflective fiber gratings in a single fiber was investigated. Firstly, the spatial distribution function of fiber gratings was deduced in theory, and the effects of interference among each sensing fiber grating and between the gratings with broadband reflector were investigated. Then the strain sensor system cascaded 215 fibers Bragg gratings (FBGs) in a single fiber had been numerical investigated, the spatial domain addressing and wavelength demodulation of the fiber gratings was implemented according to Fourier transform and inverse Fourier transform. Finally, the internal relations between interaction noise and distribution position of the gratings were simulation analysis. The results show that the interference exists among each sensing fiber grating,but it can be suppressed by buffer fiber. This allows obtaining more realistic values of the performance and design parameters such as the number of FBGs, the reflectivity of the gratings, and the distance between the sensors.
