High temperature performance of an optical microfibre coupler and its potential use as a sensor

Wang, Pengfei, Ding, Ming, Brambilla, Gilberto, Semenova, Yuliya, Wu, Qiang and Farrell, Gerald (2012) High temperature performance of an optical microfibre coupler and its potential use as a sensor Electronics Letters, 48, (5), pp. 283-284. (doi:10.1049/el.2011.3181).

Record type: Article


The dependence of the transmission spectrum of an optical microfibre coupler at high temperatures is investigated experimentally. Results show a temperature sensitivity up to 36.59 pm/°C at a taper waist outer diameter of 2.5 µm; such a temperature-dependent performance can be utilized for temperature sensing up to 1000°C.
