Paper Abstract

A quasi-distributed temperature monitoring system based on the concatenation of identical low reflective Fibre Bragg Gratings and interrogated by means of an Optical Time Domain Reflectometer is presented. A wavelength sensitive system placed before the OTDR detector is used to analyse the reflected signal. This system allows the height of the FBG reflection peaks in the OTDR trace to depend on their resonance wavelength, and therefore to temperature. Simulations and experimental results are exposed.
