Paper Abstract

A new low-cost laser range finder using optical feedback interferometry has been developed. Our purpose is to design a high- accuracy sensor for short distances, the principle being based on using an optical fiber as a reference target. An accuracy of 10 \µm can be reached when measuring a distance of 2 cm between two targets located at around 4.5 m from the laser source.
