Title

A SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR FABRICATION OF POLYMER COATED SALINITY SENSOR

Brief Description (Abstract)

The various embodiments of the present invention provide a system and method for fabrication of polymer coated salinity sensor for oceanographic applications based on user-defined Apodized fiber Bragg grating. The invention is also related to creating user-defined apodization profile that focuses on minimizing side lobes of received spectrum thus improving detection time, repeatability and reliability of measured salinity value. The system comprises a broadband light source, a circulator module, a sensing probe, an interrogator unit, a data analysis module and a user interface module. The present invention is configured to be used along with other ocean observation platforms such as CTD casting, continues profiler, Argo floats and data buoys. Salinity value obtained from the present invention is used on-board ships for detecting underwater structures, to tune sonar and also to find velocity profile of ocean.
