Paper Abstract

Recently, greater emphasis has been placed on the need for remote sensing in all fiber-optic interferometric sensor systems. In order to accurately understand system response, one must investigate the optical effects associated with the use of a long lead cable in conjunction with interferometric sensors. This paper describes an empirical study of the responses of a 12 meter sample of armored fiber-optic cable to which static and dynamic stresses were applied. The results include quantitative measurements of variations in light amplitude, polarization state and interferometer output, and the correlation between these effects under stress conditions.
