Paper Abstract

It is presented the results of experimental studies through the implementation of a Fizeau-based Fiber Tip Interferometer (FTI), as the realization of the open optics Fizeau Interferometer into Fiber-optics. The FTI was constructed with off-the shelf fiber optic components and can be compacted in a way of a “sensor head” for various purposes. The FTI can be used as a single probe device or as a multiple probes device for several simultaneous measurement points. The single probe FTI is integrated by a HeNe laser, a Fiber bi-conical tapered coupler and a fiber-coupled GRIN lens. A range of applications of such homodyne interferometer device for non-contact measurements, going from ultrasound detection to temperature measurements are presented.
