Paper Abstract

This paper describes a fiber optic pressure transducer intended for use in biomedical applications. The sensing element, or "optrode," is an interference cavity or etalon (essentially a "Hadley - Dennison " filter) formed mainly of glass, which is mounted at the end of a single optical fiber. This construction offers several advantages over earlier transducer designs based on similar principles.
