Abstract
We present a self-mixing interferometer (SMI) vibrometer developed around a laser diode with a simple and compact analog processing of the fringe signal, and show that this instrument can readily detect ambient vibrations—which adversely affect mechanical material-working lathes. In addition, we find out that the vibrometer is an excellent intrusion detector, capable of discovering a man stepping several meters away from the sensor, thus hinting at an SMI application as an antithief sensor.
