A parallel multiplexed temperature sensor scheme using a Bragg grating-based fiber laser approach has been developed and evaluated. Multiple laser cavities were formed as the active gain media of the system using a common broadband chirped fiber Bragg grating (CFBG) and several normal FBGs, which were used as optical feedback elements, in conjunction with different lengths of erbium-doped fibers (EDFs). These gain media were externally pumped by light from a 1480-nm laser diode (LD) through a 1480-nm 1 times 4 splitter. Normal FBGs were used as the wavelength-selective and sensing elements of the laser system. Simultaneous laser action at three different wavelengths corresponding to channels 1, 3, and 4, respectively, was obtained using this scheme. The temperature was measured over the range from room temperature (27 degC) to a maximum of 540 degC, which shows the potential of the scheme for quasi-distributed sensor applications
