Demonstration of a passive sub-picostrain fiber strain sensor
We demonstrate a fiber Fabry-Perot (FFP) sensor capable of detecting sub-picostrain signals, from 100 Hz and extending beyond 100 kHz, using the Pound-Drever-Hall frequency locking technique. A low power diode laser at 1550 nm is locked to a free-space reference cavity to suppress its free-running frequency noise, thereby stabilizing the laser. The stabilized laser is then used to interrogate a FFP where the PDH error signal yields the instantaneous fiber strain.
