Abstract

An optical fiber sensor composed of six standard FBGs in cascade is interrogated by use of a technique based on wavelength to delay mapping. A microwave-modulated optical signal enters the FBG cascade and, after being sliced and reflected, experiences dispersion in standard single-mode fiber. The Bragg wavelengths of the FBGs are mapped into the delays that determine the peaks in the system¿s electrical impulse response. The Bragg wavelength shifts are calculated from the difference of the delays undergone by FBGs samples. A resolution of 9.2 pm in Bragg wavelength shift is demonstrated.
