Paper Abstract

Optical fibre intensity based sensors, though simple in concept, are limited by the fact that intensity referencing must be provided to produce an accurate device. This paper describes a referencing system that has been evaluated yielding errors as low as 1% for up to 20 dB in-line power attenuation. It goes on to consider techniques whereby several such sensors may be multiplexed into a passive optical network.
