Abstract

A new implementation of heterodyning to measure spectral shifts of fiber Bragg gratings is described. A pair of closely matched phase-shifted gratings is used, and the separation of their transmission peaks is measured as a heterodyne beat frequency when illuminated with spectrally filtered incoherent light. This method can potentially offer high (<1pm) resolution, fast (μs) measurement, and strain-temperature discrimination.
