Paper Abstract

A novel displacement sensor based on diode-end-pumped solid-state laser technology has been investigated theoretically and experimentally. The investigation results indicate that provided the average radius of the pump beam in the gain medium is much smaller than the radius of the waist of the TEMoo laser beam, the exponential of the laser output power will change in a manner of a Gaussian function when the waist of the pump beam is displaced axially. Both the measurement range and the sensitivity of the displacement sensor depend on the pump power, the measurement range will be enlarged and the sensitivity be enhanced when the pump power is increased. For the experimental system of the diode-end-pumped 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser sensor, the measurement range and the sensitivity are 13.045-mm and 0.148-mW/μm, respectively, when the input optical power is 7.24-Watt (corresponding to a maximum output power of 1.926-Watt). Several main error sources that affect measurement accuracy of the displacement sensor have also been analyzed.
