Vibrometer based on a self-mixing effect interferometer

L. Martí-López, R. González-Peña, R.A. Martínez-Celorio, E.E. Ramírez-Miquet

Abstract


We outline the basic principles of the self-mixing effect and present the design and construction of an interferometer based on this phenomenon. It differs from the previously reported in the literature by the use of two photodetectors, located at different arms of the interferometer. This feature allows widening the arsenal of strategies for the digital processing of the signal. The interferometer is used as vibrometer for the characterization of professional loudspeakers. Experimental results are presented as an illustration.

Keywords
