Paper Abstract

A new amplified CWDM (Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing) self-referencing sensor network using phase-shifted fiber Bragg gratings (PS-FBGs) is experimentally demonstrated in this work. The network uses the PS-FBGs to address intensity sensors in a transmissive configuration, obtaining simultaneously in reflection a wavelength encoded reference signal. In order to enable the remote operation of the sensors, we have introduced optical amplification at the interrogation header of the network, using highly doped erbium fiber.
