Paper Abstract

A novel optical displacement sensor based on Bragg effect is described. A green light bema was used to excite a Rh6G dye solution in Shank type geometry. The beam was split up by a dielectric mirror and the two equal intensity vertically polarized light beams were folded by two mirrors to interfere in the dye cell. The lasing wavelength was found to be a precise function of the half angle between the beams. The vibrating body was attached to one of the folding mirror. In normal operation the lasing line wavelength was unchanged but during mirror vibration corresponding to this 1 degree was 87 micrometers . The sensor resolution was about 1.3 angstrom/micrometers . This ultrashell displacement sensor can be used to determine the frequency of vibration or simple displacements in ultraprecise applications.
