We present that development of a whitelight interferometric spectrum based signal processing method for fiber optic absolute sensing. The signal processing method achieves an extremely high resolution over a large dynamic range. The signal processing techniques are demonstrated on a whitelight fiber optic sensor system which uses a broadband LED as its source, and an low finesse extrinsic Fabry-Perot cavity as its sensing element. The interferometric spectrum from the sensor is received and processed through a computer compatible spectrometer which used a grating to disperse the light and a CCD array to record the spectrum. The experimental results show that the system achieves absolute measurement with nanometer accuracy over a range of more than 16 micrometers .
