Abstract
A wavelength interrogation system based on an arrayed-waveguide-grating (AWG) is evaluated. The transmission wavelengths are capable of shifting by thermally scanning the AWG. By employing this AWG wavelength tunability scheme, the center wavelength of a long-period-grating (LPG) sensor is precisely interrogated. The theoretical principle and the experimental result are presented in this paper. An interrogated wavelength resolution of 0.5 pm is achieved by introducing this technique. Furthermore, a palm-size LPG sensor interrogator based on a chip integrated with an AWG demultiplexer, a photodiode, a signal processing module and an electronic controlling module is proposed.
