Abstract

We present a quasi-static fiber optic strain sensing system capable of resolving signals below nanostrain from 20 mHz . A telecom-grade distributed feedback CW diode laser is locked to a fiber Fabry–Perot sensor, transferring the detected signals onto the laser. An H 13 C 14 N absorption line is then used as a frequency reference to extract accurate low-frequency strain signals from the locked system.
