Author Affiliations +
This paper uses 3 X 3 coupler passive demodulation of combined Michelson and polarimetric optical fiber sensors to simultaneously measure axial and transverse strain components in a single optical fiber bonded to a vibrating cantilever beam. The separated Michelson and polarimetric signals are used with isothermal Michelson and polarimetric phase strain-models to provide two independent equations describing the strain in the fiber. These equations provide enough information to calculate axial and transverse strains in surface mounted sensors.
