Abstract

We demonstrate an innovative method for a real-time interrogation of fiber Bragg gratings based on low-coherence spectral interferometry of noiselike pulses. By analyzing the spectral interference at the output of a Michelson interferometer we obtained the impulse response of the grating with a time resolution of ~350 fs . Using the Gabor transformation, we could directly detect nonuniform regions inside the grating and could measure the spatial dependence of the resonance wavelength along the grating.
