Abstract

We present an all-fiber design for a microphone using a fiber Bragg grating Fabry–Perot resonator attached to a diaphragm transducer. We analytically model and verify the fiber–diaphragm mechanical interaction, using the Hänsch–Couillaud readout technique to provide necessary sensitivity. We achieved a noise-equivalent strain sensitivity of 7.1×1012  ϵ/Hz, which corresponds to a sound pressure of 74  μPa/Hz at 1 kHz limited by laser frequency noise and yielding a signal-to-noise ratio of 47±2  dB with a 1 Pa drive at 1 kHz, in close agreement with modeled results.
