Abstract
We report a novel sideband interrogation method to measure the resonance frequency difference between optical resonators. The laser carrier and a special designed sideband are simultaneously locked to the resonance frequencies of two sensor heads, respectively. Based on this method, an ultra-high resolution optical fiber real-time strain sensor system is built using a pair of identical fiber Fabry-Perot interferometers. A strain resolution of 0.05 nano-strain is demonstrated experimentally, and the measuring frequency is 7 Hz.
