Paper Abstract

We present the application of Optical Code Division Multiplexing (OCDM) techniques in order to enhance the spectral operation and detection capability of fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensors networks even under overlapping conditions. In this paper, Optical Orthogonal Codes (OOC) are used to design FBG sensors composed of more than one reflection band. Simulation of the interaction between the encoded Gaussian-shaped sensors is presented. Signal decoding is performed in the electrical domain without requiring additional optical components by means of the autocorrelation product between the reflected spectrum and each sensor-codeword. Results illustrate the accuracy and distinction capability of the method.
