Abstract
This paper presents a novel fiber flowmeter based on distributed feedback fiber laser (DFB-FL). The DFB-FL is encapsulated in a PU tube which is put in the center of the flow pipe. When the flow speed changes, the flow induced pressure turbulence on the surface of the PU tube will change correspondingly. This pressure fluctuation is demodulated using phase-generated-carrier (PGC) method. The test result shows that the sensitivity of the fiber laser flowmeter is about 8×10-3 pm/(m3/h). A resolution of 1.25×10-4 m3/h is achieved.
