|Abstract: ||Sensor systems including an interferometer system are disclosed herein.
In a general embodiment, the sensor system includes an optical fiber that
is embedded into a sample, where the optical fiber has a reflective tip.
The optical fiber is optically coupled to a sensor and a detector of the
laser interferometer system. The sensor system further includes a
computing device or circuit that is configured to receive electrical
signals generated by the detector. The laser source is configured to emit
light, which is coupled into the optical fiber. The light travels through
the optical fiber until the light reaches the reflective tip, where it is
reflected back through the optical fiber. The detector is impacted by the
reflected light, and generates an electrical signal based upon the
reflected light. The computing device generates a value that is
indicative of a behavior of the sample based upon the electrical signal.
