Paper Abstract

A modified fiber-optic Sagnac interferometer with a stable π/2 phase bias is demonstrated for the demodulation of diaphragm-based acoustic sensors. The phase bias is obtained by introducing a nonreciprocal frequency shift between the counter-propagating waves. The system is passive and without complicated servo-control for phase stabilization. Interrogated by the proposed demodulation system, a 100 nm-thick graphite diaphragm-based acoustic sensor demonstrated a minimum detectable pressure level of ~ 450 μPa/Hz1/2 at the frequency of 5 kHz and the output signal stability is less than 0.35 dB over an 8-hour period.
