A fiber optic lever sensing technique utilizing three fibers, one transmit and two receive with different core diameters, is described. The method predicts improved sensitivity, and in some cases, larger fiber-reflector gaps than three fibers of equal cores and numerical apertures. Other features include the already established advantages of compensation for input power variations and input fiber losses. It is found that optical fibers with unequal core-cladding diameters as well as numerical apertures provide the most improved results.
