Power modulated fiber-optic loop sensor: theoretical and experimental investigation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The present work is focused on discussing a power modulation based sensor created using a single mode optical fiber. The sensing principle allows making displacement measurements with high accuracy and in a large measurement range due to the presence of resonance peaks in the transmitted intensity. A theoretical model is developed for the Fiber-Optic Loop Sensor (FOLS) and is validated with experimental data. The results show close matching between theoretical predictions and experimental results, allowing the use of the sensor for displacement measurement.
