Abstract

We demonstrated a linearized wavelength interrogation system of fiber Bragg grating (FBG) strain sensors, based on a wavelength-swept active mode locking (AML) fiber laser. Since the wavelength sweeping mechanism of the AML fiber laser does not depend on the wavelength selecting filter, we can easily demonstrate the wavelength-linear sweeping by applying a programmable electrical signal to the laser cavity. Both static and dynamic strain measurements of FBG sensors were characterized with high linearity, which has an R-square value of 0.9999 at a sweep rate of 50 kHz.
