Paper Abstract

A simple fiber optic microphone was developed. The sensor operates on the well known principle of reflective sensors where the optical fibers are used as a source and modulated light collecting medium. The optical fiber reflective sensor was applied as a vibration detector of a membrane isntrument. The sensor characteristic was found linear for displacement amplitudes up to 0.6 mm for the large core fiber optic sensor. The measured signals were compared to signals from a commercial dynamic microphone. The test results indicate that the fiber optic microphone is capable of detecting lower frequencies that the high quality dynamic audio microphone.
