Abstract

A multi-sensor addressing method for fiber Bragg grating aided fiber loop ringdown (FBG-FLRD) sensor array is proposed. It is capable of simultaneous measurement of temperature and force. Light from a wavelength-swept fiber laser (WSFL) is modulated into pulsed light to illuminate FBG-FLRD sensor array. Based on the time sequence of pulsed lights reflected by fiber Bragg grating array, each FBG-FLRD sensor can be distinguished. The time interval between the trigger signal of the WSFL and the pulsed light reflected by FBG offers temperature variation information. By measuring the ringdown time of each FBG-FLRD, the loss of fiber ring induced by temperature and force can be obtained. And then simultaneous measurement can be implemented in real time. To prove the validity of the proposed system, a six elements array is experimentally validated with interrogation frequency of 27.5 Hz.
