Paper Abstract

A reflective-type fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor based on intensity modulation technique has been developed to construct an FBG underwater acoustic sensor array, which consists of a amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) source, a four-port optical circulator and a pair of FBGs: one is used for sensing component, and the other is used to provide a narrowband light source from the incoherent ASE source. The paired FBG configuration enables us to eliminate temperature effects on the acoustic detection. In addition, the reflective-type sensor uses a single lead-in/out fiber so that it is convenient to arrange a multiplexed sensor array. In the experiment, the FBG underwater acoustic sensor with two sensing elements is fabricated and thermally stabilized time-division multiplexed detection is demonstrated.
