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 ...
Programmable Fiber-based in-band OSNR Monitoring for Flexgrid Coherent Optical Communication System
With the rapid development of ultra-dense large capacity coherent WDM optical communication networks, the monitoring of in-band optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR) plays an essential role to ensure signal qualities. ...
64 Core ultra dense multicore fiber design for optical fronthaul systems
To make the most of spatial efficiency, we design 64-core trench-assisted multi-core fiber with the maximum crosstalk less than -14dB/20km, which is appropriate for the optical wireless fronthaul systems with inherent MIMO ...
Efficient edge coupler for higher order mode fiber-to-chip coupling
An edge coupler composed of two tapered waveguides and a Y-branch for LP11-TE1 mode coupling and mapping is proposed on silicon-on-insulator platform. An average 3 dB coupling loss can be acquired within 100 nm bandwidth.
Highly sensitive strain sensor based on helical structure combined with Mach-Zehnder interferometer in multicore fiber
Optical fiber sensors for strain measurement have been playing important roles in structural health monitoring for buildings, tunnels, pipelines, aircrafts, and so on. A highly sensitive strain sensor based on helical ...
Programmable multi-wavelength filter with Mach–Zehnder interferometer embedded in ethanol filled photonic crystal fiber
We experimentally demonstrated a free spectrum range (FSR) tunable comb filter based on a programmable thermo-controlled Mach–Zehnder interferometer. The device is constructed by sandwiching a length of ethanol-filled ...
Harnessing oversampling in correlation-coded OTDR
Coding technique has long been investigated as a solution to improve the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) without sacrificing spatial resolution in optical time domain reflectometry (OTDR) systems. The past researches have been ...

We experimentally demonstrate an all-fiber structured bandwidth variable second-order optical temporal differentiator based on linearly chirped fiber Bragg grating and digital thermal controller. The bandwidth can be ...
Simultaneous Measurement of Torsion and Temperature Based on Helical Structure in Multicore Fiber
An all-fiber torsion sensor based on a helical structure in a multicore fiber is demonstrated. The sensor exhibits the ability of discriminating torsion direction, torsion angle and temperature.
Directional torsion and temperature discrimination based on a multicore fiber with a helical structure
We propose and experimentally demonstrate a directional torsion sensor based on a Mach-Zehnder interferometer formed in a multicore fiber (MCF) with a ~570-μm-long helical structure (HS). The HS was fabricated into the MCF ...
