We present a novel fiber Bragg grating array interrogation system wherein all the sensors have the same Bragg wavelength but different reflectivities. The sensor grating signals are tracked using a multiple-threshold level-crossing network consisting of reference gratings and are encoded as a series of signal pulses whose amplitudes are proportional to the reflectivity of the corresponding sensor. Demodulation is achieved by assembling the pulses by virtue of their heights and temporal order to reconstruct the signals of each sensor. The proposed reflectivity division multiplexing (RDM) method is a completely passive system that gives a direct readout of the perturbation, ideal for high-speed high-frequency real-time applications.
