Abstract

A new kind of fiber-optic sensor, to our knowledge, is proposed: a chaotic sensor. The sensor is based on a fiber-ring resonator that is optically driven by a train of pulses whose period equals the round-trip delay of the resonator. This sensor exploits the extremely high dependence of chaotic systems on initial conditions to sense several physical parameters (elongation, attenuation, index of refraction). The measured information is encoded in different geometrical characteristics of the chaotic attractor. The proposed sensing scheme has been modeled and simulated. The simulations reveal high potential for this structure as a multiparameter sensor.
