Abstract

An intrinsic Fabry-Perot interferometeric sensor based on a microfiber has been demonstrated. The micro-size suspended core is created by chemical etching a photonics crystal fiber, of which the cladding has a micrometer-spaced, hexagonal array of air holes. The sensing head is fabricated by chemical etching a short section of photonics crystal fiber spliced with a single mode fiber. The temperature sensing characteristic of the interferometer has also been demonstrated and a sensitivity 14.3 pm/°C is obtained. View Full-Text
