Paper Abstract

To realize the miniature of fiber laser accelerometers, a metal-shell-packaged single-cylinder mandrel-structured distributed feedback (DFB) fiber laser accelerometer was proposed, whose key sensing component is the DFB fiber laser with a cavity length of 16mm. Simulation results show that when the weight of the mass is 400g, the radius of the thin shell cylinder is 0.5cm, we will find that the resonance frequency of the sensor is 900Hz and its sensitivity reaches 18.1pm/g. It is also shown that its sensitivity achieved 42.8dB.re.rad/g while demodulated by an unbalanced Michelson optical fiber interferometer with 1m path difference. In addition, the effects of its structure and material parameters on the acceleration sensitivity are also studied.
