Paper Abstract

This paper reports on the development of a passive, fast demodulation system for use with in-fiber Bragg gratings used for strain or temperature measurements. This compact, potentially inexpensive self-referencing system permits absolute strain/temperature measurements over a wide dynamic range with fast temporal response by tracking the wavelength shifts of the narrow-band back-reflected Bragg spectrum. The wavelength, bandwidth and strain sensitivity of a Bragg sensor are discussed, and examples of both static and dynamic strain measurements are shown.
