amplitude-modulated sensor

A type of fiber optic sensor that detects alteration in position, distance, pressure, liquid level or temperature by transmitting light across a gap to a reflector; a change in the light returned to the sensor indicates a change in the position of the reflector, hence a change in the parameter being measured.
