Simultaneous Measurement of Strain and Temperature Using a Single Emission Line

Leandro, D., Ams, M., Lopez-Amo, M. , Sun, T. & Grattan, K. T. V. (2015). Simultaneous Measurement of Strain and Temperature Using a Single Emission Line. Journal of Lightwave Technology, 33(12), pp. 2426-2431. doi: 10.1109/jlt.2014.2374531


In this study, we present and demonstrate a novel sensor system for simultaneous measurement of strain and temperature through a unique combination of a long period grating and a fiber laser based on a fiber Bragg grating. In order to achieve this, a new erbium-doped fiber laser structure is created, showing an optical signal-to-noise ratio of 55 dB and a peak power measured on the optical spectrum analyzer between -5 and 0 dBm. The strain and the temperature information can be obtained by using a unique emission line through monitoring both the fiber laser wavelength shift and the change of the power level, both of which showing a clear linear behavior.
