Paper Abstract

The development of an Optoelectronic Smart Structure Interface (OSSI) will be required for the practical implementation of Smart Structure Technology. Such an interface will permit an extremely user-friendly interconnection to any Smart Structure component permitting the optical signals from an embedded optical fiber sensor array to be transmitted from the structure in a form most acceptable for that specific application. We have developed a simple, passive, fast response wavelength demodulation system for intracore Bragg grating sensors and have demonstrated real time strain measurements. Currently, we are exploring the use of this wavelength demodulation system with Bragg grating tuned fiber laser sensors and intend to show that such a system can form the basis of an OSSI.
