Abstract
A principle is presented that uses a longitudinal mode splitting laser to sense the microdisplacement and measure the air refractivity with very simple construction, large measurement ranges, high sensitivity, and precision. The phase differences of two power curves of the split modes can be used to judge the movement direction, and the number of the Lamb dips and mode-change dips can be used to measure micrometer displacement. Because of the anamolous dispersion, the relative variation of the beat frequency is the function of the change of cavity length, which is the basis of measuring nanometer displacement.
