Paper Abstract

To use FCG (Fiber Chirp Grating) as intensity demodulating sensor, the environmental interference should be eliminated, a method of signal ratio is used. Three FCGs and paired fibers are used in strain measurement, two FCGs are connected in series with the first fiber, one acts as a tensive sensor, the other acts as a compressive sensor. The third FCG is alone connected with the second fiber and acts as a reference. Sensing FCGs' intensity output is divided by reference's. Although the level of interference was put as high as the level of load, the ratio is still of good responsibility with the stress, and is of good linearity, and the maximum error in full range is 1.5%.
