This correspondence presents an optimized frequency modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) interrogation procedure for reflective delay line-type SAW sensors. In this method, the time delays between reflections are obtained with Fourier transform from optimally windowed frequency response. Optimal window functions maximize the signal-to-interference ratio at chosen temporal points of interest. The method is experimentally verified and its accuracy is compared with that of a Fourier transform from Hamming-windowed frequency response.
