Abstract
This paper presents a high repetition rate fiber Bragg grating (FBG) interrogation system that is able to capture the entire reflection spectrum at a rate of up to 300 kHz. The system uses a high speed MEMS based tunable optical filter that is driven with a sinusoidal voltage. The time varying FBG reflection spectrum in transmitted through the tunable filter. The time varying signal is then mapped into time varying reflection spectra. This interrogation system is used during two dynamic strain tests, in which the reflection spectra are measured at a repetition rate of 100 kHz. The first test is the impact of a woven carbon composite and the second test is on an electromagnetic railgun.
