Abstract
In this paper, an optical fiber pressure transducer, measuring range from 0 to 1.6 MPa, resolution 0.0001 MPa, and non-linearity error less than 0.5%, is presented. Similar to previous techniques, this transducer determines pressure on the strain of the pressure diaphragm. But it introduces a multi-mode Y splitter in the illuminating fiber of the primary two-fiber displacement sensor to receive the reference signal collected by illuminating the fiber itself. Theoretical analysis and trial data show that the pressure transducer based on this design has improved sensitivity, while its non-linearity error has decreased. It is confirmed also that the pressure transducer has long term stability.
