Abstract

We report on an amplitude-division-multiplexed interferometric sensor array for locating acoustic emission. Preliminary experiments were carried out with a modified Mach–Zehnder interferometer consisting of two sensing arms and a reference arm and demonstrated a one-dimensional location accuracy of a few centimeters. The system can be extended for two- and three-dimensional location of acoustic emissions by the addition of one or two more sensing arms, respectively, in the interferometer.
