Abstract

This paper reports a novel coaxial cable Fabry-Perot interferometer for sensing applications. The sensor is fabricated by drilling two holes half-way into a coaxial cable. The device physics was described. The temperature and strain responses of the sensor were tested. The measurement error was calculated and analyzed.
Keywords: Fabry-Perot interferometer; coaxial cable sensor; structural health monitoring; temperature and strain measurement Fabry-Perot interferometer; coaxial cable sensor; structural health monitoring; temperature and strain measurement
