Abstract
In this study we evaluate the measurements of fiber Bragg sensor spectra from a sensor embedded in a composite laminate subjected to multiple low velocity impacts. The full-spectral response of the sensor is interrogated in reflection at 100 kHz during the impact events. The measurement of the time dependent spectra features are compared with previous results obtained at a 534 Hz interrogation rate. With the increased interrogation rate, we can observe a smooth transition in the full-spectra response of the sensor between strikes and the presence of peak-splitting due to transverse compression from the beginning of the laminate lifetime. Finally, at the 100 kHz acquisition rate, it is possible to determine the maximum wavelength and accurately determine the duration of the impact event for all of the strikes.
