Abstract: We present a quasi-static fiber optic strain sensing system capable of resolving signals below nanostrain from 20 mHz. A telecom-grade distributed feedback CW diode laser is locked to a fiber Fabry-Perot sensor, transferring the detected signals onto the laser. An (HCN)-C-13-N-14 absorption line is then used as a frequency reference to extract accurate low-frequency strain signals from the locked system. (C) 2010 Optical Society of America
