In this paper, we have proposed a novel wavelength scanning fiber-optic interferometer for absolute distance measurement. A wavelength scanning source is used to simultaneously illuminate two F-P cavities, one as a sensing interferometer, the other as reference interferometer. With this method, we can obtain absolute measurement, and decrease the demands on the light source, such as its stability of wavelength and power, its repeatability of scanning range. The accuracy of 0.2 micrometer and resolution of 0.04 micrometer are achieved, in the range of 0 - 2 mm.
