This paper presents research into an innovative fibre optic sensor which can be used instead of acoustic emission piezoelectric transducers. This new sensor presents a constant response in both frequency and amplitude range, so that it is not necessary to submit the acquisition system to frequent calibrations. This transducer, based on a Michelson interferometric scheme, shows a very high sensitivity on a broad band frequency range and is compatible with critical environments (strong electromagnetic fields, high temperature, corrosive agents).
