Abstract

Combined time- and wavelength-division-multiplexing demodulation technique of fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor arrays using a tunable pulsed laser is proposed and demonstrated. A tunable fiber laser based on a matched FBG is applied. The wavelengths of the sensing FBGs are obtained by detecting the maximum voltages with a photodiode that avoids the complex demodulationprocess. The advantages of this scheme are simple structure, high signal-to-noise ratio, and the sensing signals obtained by detecting the maximum voltages.
