Abstract

A wavelength-division-multiplexed data-gathering network that uses a distributed fiber amplifier bus is demonstrated. A prototype, which is suitable for simultaneous data transmission and wavelength multiplexing of sensors, has been constructed based on lightly doped erbium fiber and fiber Bragg reflection gratings. The potential size to which such a network can be extended is discussed.
