FIG. 1.

(a) Schematic of FPI sensor. (b) Phase (ITF) and its first derivative (ITF). Operation at optimum phase bias point for the linear detection of a small acoustically-induced phase modulation is illustrated.

FIG. 2.

Effect of temperature on the wavelength ITF. A change in temperature from to produces a linear shift in the optimum bias wavelength from to .

FIG. 3.

Schematic of the FPI sensing structure deposited at the tip of the optical fiber.

FIG. 6.

Comparisons of the outputs of (a) a 0.4 mm PVDF membrane hydrophone and (b) the fiber-optic hydrophone in response to a “shocked” 1 MHz toneburst. Insets show expanded timescale (in ).

FIG. 7.

Measured frequency responses of three typical fiber-optic hydrophones.

FIG. 8.

Directional response of a fiber-optic hydrophone. Response shown for frequencies: (a) 1–5 MHz, (b) 6–10 MHz, (c) 11–15 MHz, and (d) 16–20 MHz.

FIG. 11.

Comparison of temperature-time curves obtained by the fiber-optic hydrophone and the thin-film thermocouple.

Image of FIG. 12.
FIG. 12.

Simultaneous acquisition of a temperature-time curve (top) and acoustic waveforms (lower row) captured at four different times during a 30 s insonation (cw). For the acoustic waveforms obtained at , 19, and 27 s, the waveform captured at (gray line) is also shown in order to illustrate the phase shift due to the thermally-induced change in sound speed.
