Paper Abstract

A wavelength demodulation system of fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensors based on wavelength scanning mode by the combination of the piezoelectric transducer(PZT) stack and the fiber Bragg grating has been presented. Two U-shaped metal brackets are set to the ends of the PZT stack. Two fibers with Bragg gratings as the reference gratings are stuck on the two sides of the U-shaped metal brackets respectively, and the parts of the gratings on the fibers are just located in the gap between two metal brackets. The equal prestressing force was imposed on the fibers and held constantly before sticking the fibers. This structure will expand the scan scope of reference grating, balance the tension of the PZT stack, strengthen the operation reliability, and improve the scan linearity. The experiment results show a good linear relationship between voltage and wavelength shift in the voltage scope of 0~200V, and the wavelength scope of linear tuning is about 3.8nm with the sensitivity of 0.0097nm/V.
