Abstract

Two different optical fiber bus networks are compared and demonstrated experimentally as means of gathering information from four wavelength-division-multiplexed photonic sensors. Both topologies include distributed amplification, which allows one to overcome the limitation in the maximum number of sensors that can be multiplexed in a single structure. Results obtained with a dual-bus topology are compared with those achieved with a single-bus network.
