Paper Abstract

An analysis of the Bragg wavelength deviation generated by TDM/WDM multiplexing of large number of fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensors has been proposed. Demodulation technique based on Fixed Spectrum Filters is compared with peak position of full wavelength spectrum. Results indicate that the fixed filter approach is less sensitive to wavelength distortion due to shadow of other sensors operating at the same nominal wavelength, allowing much larger number of FBG sensors. A simulated result show less than 1 pm deviation with up to 100 sensors at same wavelength, with 1% peak reflectivity for each sensor.
