Paper Abstract

Evaluation and experimentation performed on a wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) network system, whose optical architecture has been previously proposed for reflective-based intensity modulation sensors, is described. The key role of WDM devices for accurately transmitting optical signals is outlined, and, in particularly, the effect of wavelength-channel mismatch is discussed. A system for referencing the optical power is discussed. Special effort has been made to determine fiber behavior under common stress, which is then studied as a function of constraints due to the choice of wavelength used for measuring or referencing the light signals passing through the network.
