High Performance Fiber Optic Accelerometers

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Recent progress towards the development of fully packaged, field ruggedized, high performance fiber optic (FO) accelerometers is reported. Appropriate design considerations, including a novel elliptical flexural disk design, have resulted in FO accelerometers with many desirable engineering features which include: (i) high sensitivity (> 20 dB re rad/g), (ii) broad frequency response (100 Hz to 20 kHz), (iii) low sensitivity to extraneous measurands (e.g. pressure sensitivity < -200 dB re rad/μPa), (iv) low transverse sensitivity (< -30 dB) and (v) small size (< 35 gms total). Preliminary results describing the performance of the FO accelerometers in field trials are also presented.
