Paper Abstract

A model of intensity based fiber optic displacement sensors is developed. Two sensor designs are presented. The first was designed to measure the gap between a shaft and housing, for use in a magnetic bearing control loop. It is sensitive and has low temperature drift. Another sensor incorporating a scheme to compensate for changes in target reflectivity was also built.
