Paper Abstract

A weak double-peak fiber Bragg grating (FBG) temperature sensor is proposed and demonstrated. Wavelength-swept tunable laser is regarded as one of the most popular demodulation methods for fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensors. However, due to the limitations of the existing tunable laser technologies, a fast, compact, stable and low-cost tunable laser for FBG sensors is still unavailable, which will become one of the major barriers for more widespread applications of FBG sensors. To further improve the efficiency and accuracy of the FBG interrogation system, a FBG temperature sensor is proposed and demonstrated by using tunable laser and a weak double-peak FBG. Since the reflection of the weak double-peak FBG has two main reflection peaks and relatively wide bandwidth, it is convenient to track the two characteristic peaks to accurately obtain the wavelength shift during the alteration of ambience temperature. A proof-ofconcept experiment is also conducted to verify the theory. By demodulating a weak double-peak FBG in the temperature experiment, a sensor sensitivity of 10.17 pm/ °C is measured for the proposed interrogation system.
