Paper Abstract

When a small reflecting membrane is paralleled to a special Fresnel diffractive lens, the light intensity at the focal point of the diffractive lens is highly sensitive to the position of the membrane. Based on this principle, the authors put forward a new optical acceleration sensor which can largely meet the development of the fly-by-fight system used in flight control system. In addition, the sensing principle is described and the computer simulation of the sensor is carried out. The results show how the light intensity depends on the membrane position and the influence of error on conclusion. The sensor has realized the mutual supplement with each other's advantages of optical fiber and Micro Electro Mechanical System (MEMS).
