Paper Abstract

We present very simple and sensitive techniques capable to interrogate ultra-weak Bragg gratings written in a long SMF-28 fiber. The techniques are suitable for distributed detection and localization of alarm conditions in early warning systems. Also, a high multiplexing capability was demonstrated in a multi-point measuring system utilizing an array of identical FBGs. This technique is based on measuring correlation between the probe and reflected signal. A DFB laser operating in a CW regime was used as a light source. We present results of experimental verification of the techniques in different sensor configurations for static strain and vibration measuring. Multipoint sensor using Bragg gratings with reflectivity of 0.01% printed in a 3-km long fiber was demonstrated.
