Abstract

We propose and demonstrate a fiber Bragg grating sensor interrogator based on a 2D imaging system using a virtually imaged phased array (VIPA) and infrared camera. There are no moving parts, and the interrogator has good stability and reliability. The absolute wavelength accuracy of the interrogator is better than that of traditional diffraction grating and a 1D-imaging-system-based method, thanks to the VIPA’s high spectral resolution and large angular dispersion. The wavelength resolution of the interrogator is about 7 pm, and the spectral range of this interrogator is more than 30 nm. The optimum setup for the best wavelength resolution is analyzed.
