Abstract

In single-mode optical fiber interferometer sensors environmental effects such as ambient temperature fluctuations and static pressure changes result in signal fading. Three different optical techniques which eliminate the signal fading problem are presented and experimentally verified. Comparison of the three techniques in terms of their technical merits is presented.
