Abstract
In this paper we repot a novel acoustic emission detection method using a fiber laser array. The ultra-narrow line width of the DFB fiber laser will result in a low equivalent noise level when using a fiber optic interferometric demodulation. A minimum detectable strain of 10-12 is achieved in the experiment. Three fiber lasers are used in the array and the acoustic emission is detected. The result is compared with that of a piezoelectric acoustic emission sensor.
