A combined time-and-spatial-division-multiplexed tree topology with eight fiber-optic Bragg-grating sensors operating at the 830-nm wavelength was constructed and tested for both quasistatic and periodic strain and temperature measurements. The system uses a interferometric wavelength-shift discriminator and incorporates a reference channel for thermal drift compensation in the output. Dynamic sensor sensitivity, as determined by primary noise sources, is evaluated, and numerical results are presented and compared with experimental results.
