Paper Abstract

New laser accelerometer is presented. Proved method consists in the using of standing wave of coherent radiation in the linear resonator as the sensitive element of the accelerated movement measurement. There are not in new accelerometer named autonomous resonatory device (ARD) any matter parameters altering during movement of the resonator, attached with object to be measured. It provides the best accuracy in the measurements. Volume part of generalized function of eikonal for rectangle laser resonator is derived. Imaginary quantity of the eikonal provides the visible altering of amplitude of interacting field of baghron in space. Optical schemes of the prototypes are presented. ARD can be applied as measuring transducers for control of movement in demanded operating regions and it provides autonomous measurement of acceleration of actual motion at free falling of object as against to all other accelerometers.
