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 ...
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 ...
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.
Magnetic field sensor with optical fiber bitaper-based interferometer coated by magnetic fluid
An optical fiber magnetic field sensor is demonstrated using a waist-enlarged fusion bitaper-based optical fiber Mach-Zehnder interferometer (MZI) coated by magnetic fluid (MF). Since refractive index (RI) of the MF is ...

A novel magnetic field sensor by using an optical fiber Bragg grating (FBG) cascaded by a cleaved optical fiber end, which is face surrounded with magnetic fluid (MF), is experimentally demonstrated. Through Fresnel ...
Highly sensitive refractive index sensor based on two cascaded microfiber knots with vernier effect
A highly sensitive refractive index (RI) sensor based on two cascaded microfiber knots with vernier effect is proposed and demonstrated by theoretical arithmetic. Deriving from high proportional evanescent field of microfiber ...
