  • Publication number: 20070252998
    Abstract: An apparatus to interrogate one or more fiber optic sensors to make high-resolution measurements at long distances between the sensor and the interrogator apparatus. The apparatus comprises a tunable light source, an optical switch for pulsing the light source, at least one sensor (e.g., a Fabry-Perot sensor) for reflecting the laser light, a fiber optic cable interconnecting the sensor with the light source, a coupler for directing the reflected light from the sensor to a detector in order to generate a digital output, and a control logic for tuning the laser light source based on the digital output from the detector. Use of a fiber Bragg grating temperature sensor is also contemplated.
