Abstract
A passive phase stepped signal processing technique for short gauge length interferometric sensors is reported. The technique utilizes three adjacent longitudinal modes from a multimode laser diode to provide three interferometric outputs separated by a phase shift of (pi) /2. The individual outputs are wavelength division demultiplexed using a monochromator and line scan CCD and processed in real time using a PC. The technique is demonstrated for temperature measurement with a 180 micrometers low finesse fiber Fabry-Perot cavity. A 60 degrees C dynamic range and better than 0.5 degrees C resolution was obtained.
