Paper Abstract

Fiber Bragg gratings are attracting increasing attention as sensors for the measurement of strain, temperature, and pressure. They are equally important as wavelength selective reflectors for fiber, and to a lesser extent, semiconductor lasers. This paper describes results from a hybrid laser comprising of a semiconductor optical amplifier coupled to a Bragg grating, and investigates the characteristics of such a laser system as a discrete strain sensor.
