Reflective liquid level sensor based on modes conversion in thin-core fiber incorporating titled fiber Bragg grating
A simple and compact reflective liquid level sensor based on modes conversion in the thin-core fiber incorporating one tilted fiber Bragg grating (TFBG) is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. A piece of thin-core ...
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 ...

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 ...
Single-wall carbon nanotubes and graphene oxide-based saturable absorbers for low phase noise mode-locked fiber lasers
Low phase noise mode-locked fiber laser finds important applications in telecommunication, ultrafast sciences, material science, and biology, etc. In this paper, two types of carbon nano-materials, i.e. single-wall carbon ...
Low-timing-jitter mode-locked fiber laser based on graphene oxide pva thin film as saturable absorber
We demonstrate a mode-locked fiber laser based on graphene oxide saturable absorber at 1550nm. The laser has a timing jitter of 53fs (100Hz to 100kHz). The contribution from the slow saturable absorber is also investigated.
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 ...
Sensitivity-controllable refractive index sensor based on reflective θ-shaped microfiber resonator cooperated with Vernier effect
In this paper, we report a sensitivity-controllable refractive index (RI) sensor based on a reflective θ-shaped microfiber resonator cooperated with Vernier effect. The θ-shaped microfiber resonator is a reflective all-fiber ...
