Paper Abstract

A digital electronic system has been designed and implemented to be used in polarimetric optical fiber sensors. The system expands the dynamic range of these sensors by counting peaks of its periodic output. High accuracy can be achieved with relatively simple optics and analog electronics. In ac applications it uses a self-reference that compensates for optical power fluctuations.
