A stable dynamic detection scheme for magnetostrictive fiber-optic interferometric sensors is studied. The working principle is presented and the experimental verification is performed. The results show that the system employing the dynamic detection scheme has better stability and sensitivity in comparison with the system employing quadrature control technique.
