Suresha, Krishnappa and Yamdagni, Sumeet and Mohan, Suresh Chandra and Asokan, Sundarrajan (2008) A Novel Opto Electro Mechanical Interrogation System for Measuring Wavelength Shifts in Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) Sensors. In: International Journal of Optomechatronics, 2 (1). pp. 61-73.Full text not available from this repository.
Here, we describe a novel FBG interrogation system in which FBGs are used as both sensing and reference elements. The reference FBGs is bonded to a mechanical flexure system having a linear amplification of 1:3.5, which is actuated using a piezo-actuator by applying a 0-150V ramp. The lengths of the reference gratings decide the maximum strain that can be applied to the reference grating, which in turn decides that strain range which can be interrogated. The main advantages of the present system are the on-line measurement of the wavelength shifts, small size, good sensitivity, multiplexing capability and low cost.
