Paper Abstract

An interferometric optical fiber sensor intended for use in Weigh-in-Motion systems is presented. The sensor uses a modified Michelson interferometer configuration with two sensing arms. To avoid polarization induced fading the force acting on the sensor is measured indirectly, using modulators which convert it to pressure. Operation of such modulators was verified by experiment and based on its results a laboratory model of a sensor was built and tested.
