Abstract
In this paper we present the results of an automated instrumentation system that we have designed for temperature gradient characterization in composite materials using the optical fibers embedded in it to construct a multichannel interferometer. The objective is to develop a specific automated measurement system that is able to interrogate different interferometric channels and electronic sensors at the same time. It is also of main concern the study of the interferometric signal processing and the disturbance analysis of such technique applied to this multichannel approach. Synchronous differential optical phase measurements have been used for both characterizations of common phase errors and spatial temperature gradient. Details of the performance, the system design and the experimental results obtained are given.
