Paper Abstract

The disadvantage of the symmetric signal demodulating method for DFB laser hydrophone is showed. Because of the different transmission coefficients of the three signal channels, the symmetric condition is dissatisfied. A model with three unsymmetrical interferometric signals is simulated. The simulated result shows that the output signal's amplitude is modulated. In order to correct the unsymmetrical coefficients, PGC (phase generated carrier) technique is introduced to the signal demodulating scheme. The experimental result shows that the PGC technique can improve the signal's symmetry and the output signal's amplitude-modulated problem does not appear obviously.
