Abstract

The cavity resonant optical position sensor is a novel sensor which can measure absolute position using an extremely simple optical system not involving interferometric techniques and yet providing micron resolution over a range of between a few centimeters and several meters. The sensor is rugged, extremely stable, requires only one optoelectronic component, and is therefore low cost. It operates with low optical powers and may be implemented both as a free-space and fiber-coupled position sensor.
