Abstract

We demonstrated a spectrometer that is capable of acquiring the spectra from interferometric fiber-optic sensors at high speed. The high spectrum acquisition rate is enabled by transforming the spectral information from frequency domain to time domain using a dispersive element and high-speed data acquisition devices. Preliminary results show that the prototype system can record 10,000 frames of spectra per second and achieve a spectrum measurement resolution of 15 nm. Better performance could be realized by using a Raman amplifier and by optimizing the parameters of the system and data processing methods.
