Paper Abstract

Coherent light propagating along a multimode optical fibre may be phase modulated by external disturbances including changes in for instance the pressure or temperature of the medium surrounding the fibre. At the output from a multimode fibre, a direct phase to amplitude modulation conversion effect takes place at the detector, and this signal may be used to detect the presence of the environmental change. However, the phase detection process is intrinsically non-linear and is subject to fading effects. This paper concentrates on describing techniques whereby reliable and consistent phase detection techniques may be implemented by optical means and presents the results obtained in the actual use of some of these techniques.
