Abstract
A novel self-referencing parameter for electro-optical WDM networks in reflective configuration for remote fiber-optic intensity sensors is reported and experimentally tested. In this configuration electrical delay lines are deployed at the processing unit, instead of long delay fiber coils in each measuring point; providing a more compact sensor-head and an easy-reconfigurable operation point. The measurement parameter is defined as the ratio between voltage values at the reception stage for different electrical phase-shifts and it is analyzed following the Z-transform formalism. Measurements validating the theoretical model are reported and self-referencing and crosstalk properties of the network are analyzed.
