Abstract
A novel interferometer interrogation concept based on Microwave Photonics is proposed and demonstrated. The system is conceptually equivalent to the double-interferometer interrogation technique in low-coherence interferometry and similar to a Microwave Photonics filter based on a fiber-optics dispersive link driven by a sliced broadband source, where the resonance in its frequency response determines the interferometer’s optical path difference. In a proof-ofconcept experiment, we use the interferometer as a displacement sensor, attaining a resolution of 63 μm over a measurement range of 3.7 mm using conventional 20-nm C-band EDFA sources and a radio-frequency bandwidth of 7 GHz.
