Abstract

Theoretical and experimental results have shown that mode power distribution (MPD) variations could significantly vary the phase of spectral fringes from multimode fiber extrinsic Fabry-Perot interferometric (MMF-EFPI) sensor systems, owing to the fact that different modes introduce different extra phase shifts resulting from the coupling of modes reflected at the second surface to the lead-in fiber end. This dependence of fringe pattern on MPD could cause measurement errors in signal demodulation methods of white-light MMF-EFPI sensors that implement the phase information of the fringes.
