Abstract : A fiber optic hydrophone for use as an underwater electroacoustic standard. The hydrophone includes a fiber optic acoustic wave detector in one end of the hydrophone which is subjected to incident acoustical waves. A similar fiber optic is in an acoustically isolated compartment where the optic fiber is not affected by the incident acoustical wave. Comparison of light passing through each coil will determine incidence of an acoustical wave on the detector fiber. (Author)
