Abstract

An exploratory study on a novel fiber ringdown pressure sensor is presented. With this technique, pressure measurements are achieved in a time domain by measurement of ringdown times. The proof-of-concept device consists of a diode laser light source, two 2×1 fiber couplers, a section of fused-silica single-mode fiber, a photodetector, and an electronic control. The sensor’s performance in the areas of stability, repeatability, and dynamic range is explored. The results demonstrate the new concept of fiber pressure sensors and the technical feasibility of developing a new generation of fiber sensors for pressure measurements.
