Full text of article: Russian language.

The article describes the theory and technique of addressed fiber Bragg structures and a new class of microwave-photonic sensory systems based thereon, the distinctive feature of which is that the fiber Bragg structure forms two ultra-narrowband frequency components separated by a unique address frequency spacing. The offset of the central frequencies of the Bragg structures is determined via processing a beat signal of the address frequencies on the photodetector, with its parameters making it possible to evaluate the physical fields applied. We formulate and solve a problem of unambiguously determining the central (Bragg) frequency shift of the addressed fiber Bragg structures with unique address frequencies and the same Bragg frequency. These are then combined into a single multi-sensor system with multiplexed response reception on a single photodetector.
