Sensing applications of arrayed waveguide grating devices

Webb, D.J. and Pechstedt, R.D. (2002). Sensing applications of arrayed waveguide grating devices. IN: 15th Optical Fiber Sensors conference technical digest, 2002. IEEE.


Progress in optical fibre sensor research has often been achieved by taking advantage of components developed for use in telecommunications, where the greater existing market is able to support the rapid commercialisation of novel devices. In the last few years there has been considerable interest in the telecommunications community in deploying arrayed waveguide gratings (AWGs) produced in a range of technologies in a variety of roles. We feel it is therefore surprising that there have been very few reports of research into using AWGs for sensing. In this paper we consider some possible roles for these devices in interrogation systems for interferometric and fibre Bragg grating (FBG) sensors.
