Abstract

The peak reflectance wavelengths of gratings with reflectance maxima separated by less than 2 nm can be accurately determined through a demultiplexing method based on Hilbert transforms of interferograms. We demonstrate a wavelength demultiplexing of three fiber Bragg gratings (FBG's) with less than 4 pm crosstalk and repeatability and less than 19 pm uncertainty. We anticipate that a large number of gratings can be demultiplexed with a single broadband source and a single receiving interferometer, provided that the interferogram is sampled at accurate intervals slightly above the Nyquist rate.
