Paper Abstract

Six self-contained fiber-optic accelerometers have been built based on the microbend fiber-optic sensor. The accelerometer systems feature a simple loss-compensation technique that removes the DC offsets that are developed as a result of spurious signals that arise due to cable bending and vibration. The sensor optical and mechanical systems are described and the results of the sensor system calibrations are reported.
