Suo, Rui, Chen, Xianfeng F., Zhou, Kaiming, Zhang, Lin and Bennion, Ian (2008). 800 nm WDM interrogation system for strain, temperature, and refractive index sensing based on tilted fiber Bragg grating. IEEE Sensors Journal, 8 (7), pp. 1273-1279.


A low-cost high-resolution wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) interrogation system operating around 800 nm region with operational bandwidth up to 60 nm and resolution of 12.7 pm utilizing a tilted fiber Bragg grating (TFBG) and a CCDarray detector has been implemented. The system has been evaluated for interrogating fiber Bragg grating based strain, temperature sensors, giving sensitivities of 0.59 pm/µe and 5.6 pm/°C, which are in good agreement with previously reported values. Furthermore, the system has been utilized to detect the refractive index change of sample liquids, demonstrating a capability of measuring index change as small as 10¯5. In addition, the vectorial expression of phase match condition and fabrication of TFBG have been discussed.
