Step 1
In this step, you will learn to define Sensor characteristics.

 

To define Sensor characteristics

 

1Select Grating from the Parameters menu, or simply select the Grating icon
on the left.
2In the Grating Manager dialog box, double-click the selected grating to open the Grating Definition dialog box.

5In the Fiber Bragg Grating Sensor dialog box, in the Temperature section,
select Linear from the list box.
6Make sure the value in the From box is set to the default value, 0 degree
Celsius.
7Make sure the value in the To box is set to the default value, 50 degree
Celsius.
8Click the OK button to close the Fiber Bragg Grating Sensor dialog box, click the OK button to close the Grating Definition dialog box, and click the OK button to close the Grating Manager.
9Select the Profile tab from the window.
10Click the Calculate button.
11The spectrum for the specified temperature distribution will be calculated.
Note that changing the distribution will change the spectrum.
