Telemetry with an Optical Fiber Revisited: An Alternative Strategy

Physics Teacher Volume 52, Number 7, ISSN 0031-921X


With a new data-acquisition system developed by PASCO scientific, an experiment on telemetry with an optical fiber can be made easier and more accurate. For this aim, an alternative strategy of the remote temperature measurements is proposed: the frequency of light pulses transmitted via the light guide numerically equals the temperature using known manufacturer's data or an initial calibration step. The additional equipment for the experiment is reduced to a minimum.
