Subfrequency noise signal extraction in fiber-optic strain sensors using postprocessing

Lam, Timothy T-Y; Gray, Malcolm B; Shaddock, Daniel A; McClelland, David E; Chow, Jong H

Description

Laser frequency fluctuations typically limit the performance of high-resolution interferometric fiber strain sensors. Using time delay interferometry, we demonstrate a frequency noise immune fiber sensing system, where strain signals were extracted well below the noise floor normally imposed by the frequency fluctuations of the laser. Initial measurements show a reduction in the noise floor by a factor of 30, with strain sensitivities of a nanostrain/Hz at 100 mHz and reaching 100 ps/Hz at 1...[Show more]
