Paper Abstract

Many optical sensors for the displacement measurement in sub-micron have been developed. In this paper, we propose a new type of self-mixing interferometry (SMI) to measure microscopic displacement in microelectromechanical systems(MEMS). The phase of SMI signal is modulated with external cavity length and demodulated by signal analysis technique. The experimental system was developed to have a sensitivity of several nanometers for displacement sensing.
