    • 46-km-long Raman amplified hybrid double-bus network with point and distributed Brillouin sensors 

      Fernández Vallejo, Montserrat Upna; Olier Aguado, David; Zornoza Indart, Ander; Pérez Herrera, Rosa Ana Upna; Díaz Lucas, Silvia Upna; Elosúa Aguado, César Upna; Bariáin Aisa, Cándido Upna; Loayssa Lara, Alayn Upna; López-Amo Sáinz, Manuel Upna (IEEE, 2012)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      We experimentally demonstrate a 46-km hybrid network that combine point and distributed Brillouin sensors. The proposed sensor network multiplexes low-cost intensity point sensors based on fiber-optic tapers, which are ...
    • Comparison of wavelength-division-multiplexed distributed fiber Raman amplifier networks for sensors 

      Díaz Lucas, Silvia Upna; López-Amo Sáinz, Manuel Upna (Optical Society of America, 2006)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      A novel distributed fiber Raman amplified star topology used for optical sensor wavelength-division multiplexing is proposed. The performance of this star configuration is compared to an optically amplified bus topology. ...
    • Dual-wavelength single-longitudinal-mode erbium fiber laser for temperature measurements 

      Díaz Lucas, Silvia Upna; López-Amo Sáinz, Manuel Upna (SPIE, 2014)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      A dual-wavelength erbium fiber laser with single-longitudinal-mode characteristic is proposed and demonstrated. The system uses a 7-m-long highly doped erbium-doped fiber as the primary gain medium while two fiber Bragg ...
