Paper Abstract

Fiberoptic systems based upon two different forms of miniature Fabry-Perot interferometer have been developed to measure the oscillatory motion generated in a commercially available vortex shedder flow meter. The results of a comparative study of the performance of the optical systems with the previously used piezoelectric detector are given for a range of water and air flows.
