Paper Abstract

In this work, a wavelength division multiplexed fiber ring laser, based on optical add-drop multiplexers to interconnect intensity sensors has been experimentally demonstrated. Three different laser lines were obtained simultaneously all with an optical signal to noise ratio higher than 30dB. This proposed configuration is based on commercial devices and is adapted to the ITU channels normative. By using this configuration each sensor was associated with a different wavelength directly offered by each OADM and a reference wavelength was also included in order to distinguish between power variations induced by the transducer or to detect a fiber failure. This sensor system has been experimentally verified by using microbending sensors obtaining experimental slope sensitivity as good as -0.327dB/μm.
