We present a new method of the fiber grating sensing interrogation technique by utilizing an indium gallium arsenide photodiode linear array and blazed fiber Bragg gratings. An interrogation system based on an InGaAs photodiode linear array is designed, and the system performance is analyzed. The interrogation system shows a good prospect for smart sensing.
