Long path-length axial absorption detection in photonic crystal fiber
In this paper, we present a long path-length axial absorption detection method in photonic crystal fibers (PCFs). A PCF, also called a holey fiber or microstructured fiber, is an optical fiber which consists of a periodic ...
In-line Mach-Zehnder interferometer composed of microtaper and long-period grating in all-solid photonic bandgap fiber
We report a compact in-line Mach-Zehnder interferometer combining a microtaper with a longperiod grating (LPG) in a section of all-solid photonic bandgap fiber. Theoretical and experimental investigations reveal that the ...
Twist sensor based on axial strain insensitive distributed Bragg reflector fiber laser
A novel fiber-optic twist sensor based on a dual-polarization distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) fiber grating laser is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. By beating the signal between the two polarizations of the ...
Optical fiber magnetic field sensor based on magnetic fluid and microfiber mode interferometer
A magnetic field sensor is proposed based on the combination of magnetic fluid (MF) and an optical microfiber mode interferometer (MMI). It is measured that the MMI is highly sensitive to ambient refractive index (RI) with ...
Cascaded fiber-optic Fabry-Perot interferometers with Vernier effect for highly sensitive measurement of axial strain and magnetic field
We report a highly sensitive fiber-optic sensor based on two cascaded intrinsic fiber Fabry-Perot interferometers (IFFPIs). The cascaded IFFPIs have different free spectral ranges (FSRs) and are formed by a short section ...
A Mach-Zehnder interferometer by combining a microtaper with a long period grating in an all solid photonic bandgap fiber and its temperature sensing characteristic
We demonstrate a new type of Mach-Zehnder interferometer by combining a nonadiabatic microtaper with a long period grating in the same stage of all solid photonic bandgap fibers. Meanwhile, the mode-coupling caused by the ...
Improved location algorithm for multiple intrusions in distributed Sagnac fiber sensing system
An improved algorithm named “twice-FFT” for multi-point intrusion location in distributed Sagnac sensing system is proposed and demonstrated. To find the null-frequencies more accurately and efficiently, a second FFT is ...
Refractive index sensor based on θ-shaped microfiber resonator and Vernier effect
A compact refractive index (RI) sensing probe with controllable sensitivities based on a θ-shaped microfiber resonator and Vernier effect is reported. By cascading the θ-shaped microfiber resonator with a fiber Fabry-Perot ...
Design of plasmonic nanopore platforms for single-molecule detection
In this letter, we proposed and numerically demonstrated a novel plasmonic nanopore platform for single-molecule detection. Bowtie nanoantennas and photonic cavities were studied to obtain Raman enhancement at single-molecule ...
Using nonlinear optical networks for optimization: primer of the ant colony algorithm
Using nonlinear Erbium doped optical fiber network we have implemented an optimization algorithm for the famous problem of finding the shortest path on the map for the ant colony to travel to the foraging area.
