Paper Abstract

A new type of fiber, an optic interferometer, is proposed and analyzed. Based on a Mach- Zehnder interferometer and recirculating delay line, this novel fiber-optic interferometer offers nearly six times the sensitivity of a comparable Mach-Zehnder interferometer, together with the unique capability of compensating for the optical source's wavelength variation and environmental fluctuations by appropriate adjustment of its two phase biases.
