Abstract

A new technique that provides linear measurement of dynamic phase change in a no-feedback, no-phase-bias fiberoptic interferometer is described. The phase measurement is unaffected by random changes in phase, source intensity, and fringe visibility. A minimum detectable phase shift of 0.1 rad has been measured for the configuration reported.
