Paper Abstract

We report on a prototype of an all-fiber optical accelerometer based on a compliant cylinder design. The measured performance is close to the requirements typical for seismic applications. The operation of the sensor is stable in a temperature range from 20 degree(s)C up to 80 degree(s)C. Considerations towards the development of a high temperature version are described.
