Abstract
In this paper a push-pull fiber optic accelerometer (FOA) is proposed. Using two cantilevers, the accelerometer operates in a push-pull configuration. The sensitivity is analyzed based on the theory of elasticity; the frequency response is analyzed based on the theory of vibration. Experiment is carried out to test the performance of the fiber optic accelerometer. The experiment results agree well with the theoretical result.
