We report a high-resolution rapid thermal sensing based on adaptive dual comb spectroscopy interrogated with a phase-shifted fiber Bragg grating (PFBG). In comparison with traditional dual-comb systems, adaptive dual-comb spectroscopy is extremely simplified by removing the requirement of strict phase-locking feedback loops from the dual-comb configuration. Instead, two free-running fiber lasers are adopted as the light sources. Because of good compensation of fast instabilities with adaptive techniques, the optical response of the PFBG is precisely characterized through a fast Fourier transform of the interferograms in the time domain. Single-shot acquisition can be accomplished rapidly within tens of milliseconds at a spectral resolution of 0.1 pm, corresponding to a thermal measurement resolution of 0.01 °C. The optical spectral bandwidth of the measurement also exceeds 14 nm, which indicates a large dynamic temperature range. It shows great potential for thermal sensing in practical outdoor applications with a loose self-control scheme in the adaptive dual-comb system.


摘要:提出一种基于自适应双光梳光谱测量系统的相移光纤布拉格光栅(PFBG)高分辨率快速热传感技术。与传统双光梳系统相比,自适应双光梳系统以两个自由运行的光纤激光器为光源,消除了严格的锁相反馈环节,极大降低了系统复杂度。利用自适应技术对光梳梳齿的快速不稳定性进行较好补偿,通过对干涉图进行时域快速傅里叶变换,精确表征了PFBG的光学响应。单次采集可在几十毫秒内完成,光谱分辨率为0.1 pm,对应的热测量分辨率为0.01 ℃。测量的光谱带宽超过14 nm,说明动态测量范围较大。自适应双光梳系统采用宽松的自控制方案,在室外实际应用中显示出巨大潜力。
