Paper Abstract

Based on the theory of optical fiber coupling and Fabry–Perot interference, a model of extrinsic Fabry–Perot interferometric (EFPI) optical fiber sensor for measuring strain is analyzed, and the theoretical model is demonstrated. A formula of white-light interfered EFPI optical fiber strain sensor is obtained. The system of the optical fiber sensor is designed using an LED source as light source to obtain reflected spectrum. The experimental results show that it coincides well with the computational simulation of theoretical model, which means the model is accurate.
