A simplification design of the fiber cavity ring-down technique

  title={A simplification design of the fiber cavity ring-down technique},
  author={Susana O. Silva and Orlando Fraz{\~a}o},
  journal={arXiv: Instrumentation and Detectors},
This paper presents a simplification design for the fiber cavity ring-down technique. The new configuration is no longer in ring cavity and is converted to a linear cavity. The proposed linear cavity is created with a single fibre coupler of 99:1 and two thin-film mirrors located at the end of the fibre arms. This configuration can be interrogated in reflection or in transmission (whether if two fibre couplers are used in conventional configuration), however the reflection interrogation…

Fiber-Optic Cavity Ring Down Using an Added-Signal for Curvature Sensing

This letter presents a fiber-optic cavity ring down (CRD) configuration using an added-signal for curvature sensing. An optical time-domain reflectometer was used to send impulses down into the fiber

Chirped fiber bragg grating cavity ring‐down for strain sensing using an OTDR

This work presents a fiber cavity ring down (CRD) configuration for the measurement of strain. An optical time‐domain reflectometer (OTDR) was used to send impulses down into the fiber loop cavity,

Fiber-loop ring-down spectroscopy

Pulsed, visible and near-infrared laser light is coupled into an optical fiber, which is wound into a loop using a fiber splice connector. The light pulses traveling through the fiber-loop are

Fiber Loop Mirror Sensors Interrogated and Multiplexed by OTDR

In this paper, two techniques for interrogation and multiplexing of fiber loop mirror (FLM) intensity sensors based on optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) are proposed. These configurations

Cavity ring‐down technique for remote sensing

This work demonstrates the viability of using a cavity ring‐down (CRD) technique for remote sensing. A conventional CRD configuration is used where an optical circulator is added inside the fiber

New advances in fi ber cavity ring-down technology

A brief review in the cavity ring-down technique (CRD) is presented. In this review, there will only be considered the conventional fiber CRD configuration, i.e., there will only be presented

Fiber optic displacement sensor based on a double‐reflecting OTDR technique

In this work, it is proposed a technique to implement an intensity sensor based on the generation of a double‐reflecting (ghost) signal in optical time domain reflectometry (OTDR). The intensity

This contribution suggests, and experimentally demonstrate, that the use of a commercial OTDR, combined with a tunable optical filter, provides an inexpensive way of implementing a wavelength division multiplexing system.

Mirror reflectometer based on optical cavity decay time.

The theoretical framework for the reflectometer is developed and in what conditions and to what extent the decay time represents a true measure of mirror reflectivity is discussed.

New approach to splice-loss monitoring using long-range OTDR

Absolute splice-loss measurements on single-mode optical fibre are performed from one cable end only using specially developed long-range OTDR equipment in conjunction with a reflector at the far end
