Polarimetric Temperature Sensor Using Core-replaced Fiber Polarimetric Temperature Sensor Using Core-replaced Fiber
The sensitivity of the fiber can be enhanced by replacing a section of the core of the fiber with a sensing material. With the sensing material in the core of the fiber, it has direct interaction with the light and strongly affects it. A polarimetric temperature sensor is created by replacing a section of the core with a polymer, which is sensitive to temperature. The core-replaced fiber in a polarimetric sensing configuration is compared to a a unetched fiber set up in the same way. The core-replaced fiber sensor is five times as sensitive to temperature as an unetched fiber.
