Paper Abstract

We present a compact, non-contact, low-cost optical sensor for real time vibration detection and active vibration control of mechanical devices based on laser speckle translation. The speckle translation is processed optically with a narrow spatial filter to provide electrical signals carrying in-phase and phase quadrature information about the speckle motion. The optical sensor is integrated with an ASIC. The ASIC and an external programmable logical device (PLD) calculate a real time electrical error signal, which then is fed back a piezo-electrical crystal. For testing purposes a mechanical sinusoidal vibration is applied to the target via a piezo-electrical spacer. The error signal deforms the piezo-electrical spacer in order to counteract and minimize the vibrational motion of the target. The primary purpose of this work is to demonstrate the feasibility of producing a compact, low-cost sensor that carries out single-point measurement of submicron, in-plane translational vibration of a solid structure in real time.
