Abstract
A novel fiber optic sensor has been developed to measure surface profile. The system is largely independent of surface reflectivity variations. Operations in both triggering and scanning modes are possible. A mathematical model has been produced and initial experimental results show close agreement to theoretical predictions. An integrated, software controlled system has been developed to allow real time surface information to be gathered. The system is both compact and inexpensive.
