Paper Abstract

Optical fiber sensors have shown great potentials for aerospace applications. But two issues need to be addressed before these applications can be realized. One is how to reliably implement optical sensors in the air vehicles. The other is the need of compact, low weight sensor interrogation systems. We propose to use planar lightwave circuits (PLC) to address the second issue. In this article, we report some of our results on the development of both echelle diffractive gratings based sensor interrogator and arrayed waveguide gratings based sensor interrogators. Both approaches offer miniaturized solutions for the development of optical fiber sensor interrogation systems.
