In order to demodulate optical fiber interferometric sensors in the coherence multiplexing scheme it is worthwhile using static interferomers. Measurement of a physical parameter is obtained by matching the optical path difference (OPD) of each interferometric sensor with a receiver. An attractive solution consists in using grating interferometer as a demodulator. Indeed, it permits one to record correlation peaks (each one corresponding to a sensor) on a photodiode array, thus making demultiplexing easier. On the other hand, it is possible to record only the peak envelope if the grating interferometer is adjusted in a well defined configuration. In this paper we concern ourselves with the theoretical determination of the conditions needed to simplify calculations and interpretation of the experimental results.
