A sensing system, with Michelson-type fiber optical interferometer based on single fiber Bragg grating (FBG) as the reflector, is demonstrated. The system used a frequency-matched ring fiber optical laser as the source. The closed Michelson-type fiber optical interferometer system will be helpful in simplifying the developed interferometric sensor by replacing the double reflectors with only one FBG reflecting the double-side light. The basic sensing properties of the system are demonstrated, with a fiber optic piezoelectric ceramic transducer embedded in the arm of the interferometer simulating the sensing signal.
