Abstract

An alternative technique for infrasound detection based on the self-mixing (SM) interference of a laser diode is described. The principle involved is the dependence of the power emitted by the laser diode on infrasound-induced membrane vibration. The Fourier transform and fringe-counting methods are used to analyze the self-mixing signal. Infrasound signals are experimentally measured from 2 to 20 Hz with a resolution of 0.25, and the results well agree with the theoretical ones.
