Abstract

A passive optical signal processing scheme for in-line fiber etalon (ILFE) fiber optic strain sensors is developed, and demonstrated, in an explosively generated shock environment. The signal processing system is based on interpreting two out-of-phase optical intensity signals. Verification tests were implemented using one-dimensional stress wave propagation where good general agreement with resistance strain gages was obtained.
