Abstract

In this paper, we propose a new, to the best of our knowledge, technique based on the measurement and analysis of the intensity of the interference pattern as an alternative approach for interrogating liquid-level interferometric fiber sensors. This interrogation is based on calculations that can take into account a vast number of peaks and dips of an interferometric spectrum, allowing the use of such devices as distributed sensors capable of measuring longer-level ranges. Here, liquid-level measurements of up to 120 mm were experimentally obtained with high linearity and a sensitivity of $ - {0.042}\;{\rm dB/mm}$.
