The field of metrological sensing continues to rely on optics based solutions, as contrary to other measuring techniques which necessitate a contact with the target surface, an optical sensor provides a precise and contact-less measurement of the target motion. Various optical instruments exist in the market, which use, among others, the principle of classical interferometry to obtain results with excellent precision. However, high cost, difficult alignment and cumbersome nature of various optical components needed in the set-up remain important hindrances to their increased use under industrial conditions. Within this context, the principle of Self-Mixing Interferometry provides us with a sensing solution that is compact, self-aligned and cost-effective while providing very good precision.
Even more, this dissertation tells us info regarding laser diodes, stand alone laser, threshold value, injection current, distance, equivalent cavity, displacement algorithm, influence, laser emission, fringe loss, mixing laser, sensors, phenomenon, frequency, diode, sensor, cavity, self mixing signal, and mixing signal.
