Abstract

This paper describes how active fibre devices and special fibres can enhance the performance of multiplexed and distributed sensing systems. The use of active fibres, such as rare-earth-doped types, cnn act as powerful CW or pulsed sources, as wavelength-tunable sources, high-power amplifiers and as low-noise detector preamplifiers. Thus many arrangements for sensor-multiplexing, or distributed sensing, which may appear unattractively lossy on first consideration, may become perfectly viable with the insertion of active devices. The paper also reviews possible applications of special fibres in multiplexed and distributed sensors. The use of such fibres can greatly enhance the performance of sensor systems and even allow the construction of new types of optical sensor which were not previously possible with conventional fibres.
