    • Application of remote power-by-light switching in a simplified BOTDA sensor network 

      Bravo Acha, Mikel Upna; Zornoza Indart, Ander; Loayssa Lara, Alayn Upna; López-Amo Sáinz, Manuel Upna; López Higuera, José Miguel; Ullán Nieto, Angel (MDPI, 2013)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      We propose and demonstrate the use of spatial multiplexing as a means to reduce the costs of distributed sensing networks. We propose a new scheme in which remote power-by-light switching is deployed to scan multiple ...
    • Contribution to the development of new photonic systems for fiber optic sensing applications 

      Bravo Acha, Mikel Upna (2015)   Tesis doctoral / Doktoretza tesia  OpenAccess
      En este trabajo de doctorado se presentan nuevos sistemas y subsistemas de sensores de fibra óptica. Así, se proponen y desarrollan nuevas técnicas, componentes y tecnologías basadas en láseres de fibra con espejos ...
    • High resolution polarization-independent highbirefringence fiber loop mirror sensor 

      Leandro González, Daniel Upna; Bravo Acha, Mikel Upna; López-Amo Sáinz, Manuel Upna (Optical Society of America, 2015)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      In this work, two all polarization-maintaining (PM) highbirefringence (Hi-Bi) fiber loop mirrors (FLM) which are immune to external polarization perturbations are validated both theoretically and experimentally. Simplified ...
    • An in-reflection strain sensing head based on a Hi-Bi photonic crystal fiber 

      Rota Rodrigo, Sergio Upna; Rodrigues Pinto, Ana Margarida Upna; Bravo Acha, Mikel Upna; López-Amo Sáinz, Manuel Upna (MDPI, 2013)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      A photonic crystal fiber-based sensing head is proposed for strain measurements. The sensor comprises a Hi-Bi PCF sensing head to measure interferometric signals in-reflection. An experimental background study of ...
    • Multiplexing of six micro-displacement suspended-core Sagnac interferometer sensors with a Raman-Erbium fiber laser 

      Bravo Acha, Mikel Upna; Fernández Vallejo, Montserrat Upna; Echapare Zabaleta, Mikel; López-Amo Sáinz, Manuel Upna; Kobelke, J.; Schuster, K. (Optical Society of America, 2013)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      This work experimentally demonstrates a long-range optical fiber sensing network for the multiplexing of fiber sensors based on photonic crystal fibers. Specifically, six photonic crystal fiber sensors which are based ...
    • Remote-time division multiplexing of bending sensors using a broadband light source 

      Bravo Acha, Mikel Upna; López-Amo Sáinz, Manuel Upna (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2012)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      This work experimentally demonstrates a remote sensing network which interrogates bending sensors using time-division multiplexing techniques and a broadband light source. The bending sensors are located 50 km away from ...
    • Suspended-core fiber Sagnac combined dual-random mirror Raman fiber laser 

      Rodrigues Pinto, Ana Margarida Upna; Bravo Acha, Mikel Upna; Fernández Vallejo, Montserrat Upna; López-Amo Sáinz, Manuel Upna; Kobelke, J.; Schuster, K. (Optical Society of America, 2011)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      In the present work, a multiwavelength fiber laser based in the combination of a double-random mirror and a suspended-core Sagnac interferometer is presented. The double-random mirror acts by itself as a random laser, ...
