A simple optical fibre sensor system based upon a two wavelength source is presented. The system may be operated in two modes: 1) a normal heterodyned interferometric sensor yielding nanometre resolution, and 2) a subcarrier system with much enhanced unambiguous range, but reduced resolution. Results indicate a displacement resolution of greater than 1mm, and vibration amplitude resolution of greater than 1Oim over a 22cm unambiguous range are achieveable. A major advantage of this system is that heterodyne signal processing has been achieved without the use of a frequency or phase shifter.
