Abstract

A three-wavelength-based passive quadrature digital phase-demodulation scheme has been developed for readout of fiber-optic extrinsic Fabry–Perot interferometer vibration, acoustic, and strain sensors. This scheme uses a superluminescent diode light source with interference filters in front of the photodiodes and real-time arctan calculation. Quasi-static strain and dynamic vibration sensing with up to an 80-kHz sampling rate is demonstrated. Periodic nonlinearities owing to dephasing with increasing fringe number are corrected for with a suitable algorithm, resulting in significant improvement of the linearity of the sensor characteristics.
