Digital demodulator unit of laser vibrometer standard for in situ measurement
AbstractTo establish an easy-to-use traceability system for laser vibrometers in vibration acceleration standard, a highly accurate reference standard is required. In this study, we investigated the measurement reliability of a commercial laser vibrometer with an analog demodulator. The results confirmed a large measurement deviation from nominal sensitivity values due to characteristics of the analog demodulator. To reduce such deviation, a high-accuracy digital demodulator, which can be utilized as a reference standard, was developed. The experimental results confirmed the improved measurement accuracy of the developed digital demodulator.
