Paper Abstract

This work describes an in-fiber Michelson interferometer inclinometer which is sensitive to curvature applied in the tapered region. The performance of this inclinometer is evaluated by calculating the variation of the fringe visibility near the 1550 nm spectral range as a function of the tilt angle. It is presented the results of four experimental measurements and calculated the average and standard deviation of those measurements. The results indicate a good response of the sensor within the angular range between 3° and 6°. The average of those four measurements is around -0.15/° and the greatest standard deviation is about 5.5%.
