Paper Abstract

The concept of nested fibre optic long period grating (LPG) based interferometers is introduced. A number of in-series, identical LPGs may be used to form a set of nested, multiplexed Mach-Zehnder interferometers that may demodulated and demultiplexed by virtue of a Fourier analysis of the optical spectrum. The concept is demonstrated by the use of three LPGs to form a nested set of interferometers.
