Abstract

sThe interrogation of a Fabry–Perot cavity through a dual wavelength Raman fiber laser is reported. The proposed sensing system is based on the use of a dual wavelength Raman fiber laser to generate two quadrature phase-shifted signals that allow the recovery of the temperature change sensed by the Fabry–Perot interferometric cavity. The dual wavelength Raman fiber laser is based on fiber Bragg gratings combined with a distributed mirror. The Fabry–Perot cavity is fabricated by splicing a short length of a suspended-core microstructured fiber to a single mode fiber. The use of this sensing system allows a passive and accurate interrogation of the temperature, while taking advantage of the Rayleigh scattering growth as a distributed mirror in the laser.
