Abstract
This paper reports a new optical fiber accelerometer which is suitable for heterodyne demodulation method. Dual low reflectivity polarization-maintaining FBG is used to form the interferometer inside accelerometer, simplify the structure of traditional interferometer and eliminate polarization fading. The resonance frequency and the sensitivity of the accelerometer are predicted by using micro-element analysis. The experimental results showed that the accelerometer’s sensitivity is more than 40 dB re rad/g, and the bandwidth is wider than 1.2 kHz. This type of optical fiber accelerometer can be widely used in acceleration sensing system which requires both high sensitivity and wide bandwidth.
