Seismometers are a critical part of the global infrastructure for monitoring seismic activity for a variety of applications. A cost-effective solution for seismic activity detection that will overcome conventional electro-mech seismometer limitations through design of a sensor utilizing an extrinsic fabry-perot interferometric sensing element, thereby reducing electrical noise, improving environmental hardening, and enabling future light based sensitivity enhancements.
