Paper Abstract

In this paper physical quantities were measured using by the fiber optic sensor when a pendulum ball collides to the fixed ball on the wall. Both steel ball dimensions are 1 inch in diameter. The fiber optic Sagnac interferometer was used to detect the impact time. It is made a 1mm penetrated hole and optical fiber in the Sagnac loop passed through the hole. A ball was welded on the steel plate wall as a fixed ball. When the another ball collides to the fixed ball the fiber optic sensor detects the impact force in between them. Based on the experimental result impact time was measured about 0.14ms at the angle of 30 degree. This fiber optic sensor technique can be expanded to the moving bodies.
