Abstract

We describe a genetic algorithm approach to solve an inverse problem in optics, which determines the characteristics of a fiber Bragg grating from its reflected spectrum. The validity of the proposed method is demonstrated by use of a Bragg sensor for the measurement of nonlinear strain acting on a uniaxial aluminum test specimen.
