Cheng-Yen Yu Award Candidate Simultaneous Measurement of Temperature and Surrounding Refractive Index by Combining A Fiber Bragg Grating and A Mach-Zehnder Interferometer


We have fabricated a compact bi-parameter sensor by splicing a fiber Bragg grating (FBG) with two single-mode fibers with misalignment to form Mach-Zehnder interferometer (MZI) structure. The transmission dips corresponding to the FBG and MZI can be successfully observed to simultaneously detect the variations in temperature and surrounding refractive index.

Yu-Ming Ge Ge Award Candidate All-Fiber Curvature Sensor Based on Liquid Crystal Mach-Zehnder Interferometer


A high-sensitive fiber curvature based on the Mach-Zehnder Interferometer (MZI) is proposed and experimentally demonstrated by simply fusion splicing a section of hollow-optic fiber (HOF) filled with liquid crystal (LC) between two single mode fibers (SMF). The curvature performance is characterized by measuring the wavelength shifts and intensity changes. A nonlinear of the wavelength “blue shift” and minimum transmission is observed when we increase the curvature. The high sensitivities of wavelength shift-curvature and intensity-curvature are obtained
