We report recent work on acoustic measurements using a Bragg grating based Fabry-Perot sensor system. A single Fabry-Perot sensor using a path matched Michelson interferometer was developed, and a digital demodulation scheme based on the phase stepping technique was used to measure acoustic sound pressure from 100 Hz to 600 Hz. This sensor is designed to work in a multiplexed architecture to provide inputs to a feed-forward adaptive control system. This control system will be used to actively control the sound pressure level within an enclosure. A series of experiments were performed to investigate the possibility and potential use of this sensor system for acoustic noise detection. In this paper, we present initial test data from the prototype optical sensor microphone. We also illustrate the envisioned multiplexed sensor scheme and control system.
