Abstract

This paper presents numerical simulations of single and dual fiber bus networks with distributed amplification, which are used for the wavelength division multiplexing of photonic sensors. The model upon which the simulations are based has been compared to a previously published experimental result and good agreement has been obtained. A novel technique for allocating the signal wavelength to the sensor position in order to equalize the received signal power is also discussed.
