Paper Abstract

In this paper, the crosstalk of a time division multiplexed (TDM) system of distributed feedback (DFB) fiber laser (FL)hydrophones based on optical switch using Phase Generated Carrier (PGC) method was quantitatively analyzed. After mathematical deduction, the relationship among crosstalk, multiplexing scale and extinction ratio of optical switch was given. The simulation results show that to realize a TDM system of DFB fiber laser hydrophones with crosstalk lower than -40dB, the average extinction ratio should be higher than 24.78dB for a 4- channel system, while higher than 28.45dB for an 8- channel system. Two experiments to analyze the array crosstalk to a certain channel in an 8- channel array were conducted in this paper. Firstly, by testing the powers of leak laser to a certain channel from others, the array crosstalk to this channel was obtained according to the equation mathematically deduced in this paper. The result shows the array crosstalk to a certain channel of the 8-channel array was -7.6dB. An experiment of underwater acoustic detection was carried out finally to get the real array crosstalk to this certain channel, and the experimental result shows that the array crosstalk to this channel is -8.8dB, which is close to the calculated result.
