Paper Abstract

A fiber optic spread-spectrum encoder has ben analyzed for thermal stability using the optomechanical constraint equations as a modeling tool. The equations were implemented in a computational spreadsheet and coupling efficiency was computed for temperatures between room ambient and 20 degrees C above ambient. The analysis results compared favorably with engineering tests. Design changes were identified that would greatly improve the thermal stability of the encoder system.
