A network for multiplexing fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) and intensity-modulated fiber-optic sensors with no need to distinguish between the two kinds of sensor is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. Two FBG sensors and two intensity-modulated sensors are wavelength-division multiplexed; the electrical phase of the output signal is measured as a common parameter for both types of sensor. Furthermore, the intensity sensors become power referenced, and the FBG sensors are interrogated by a low-cost technique. Low cross talk is achieved by use of a tunable optical filter at the detector.
