Paper Abstract

We report the development and demonstration of a fiber optic accelerometer. The principle of operation is based in the use of chirped Bragg gratings where the chirp width varies as the grating is physically deformed. The theory of operation is presented and experimentally compared with a conventional accelerometer's measurements for a vibrating beam.
