Fast-response high-temperature microfiber coupler tip thermometer

Ding, Ming, Wang, Pengfei and Brambilla, Gilberto (2012) Fast-response high-temperature microfiber coupler tip thermometer IEEE Photonics Technology Letters, 24, (14), pp. 1209-1211. (doi:10.1109/LPT.2012.2200673).

Record type: Article


A compact temperature sensor based on a broadband microfiber coupler tip is demonstrated. The thermometer dynamic range spans from room temperature to 1511°C with a response time of tens of ms. This is the highest temperature measured with a silica optical fiber device. A resolution of 0.66°C was achieved for a coupler tip diameter of ~12.56 µm. Better resolution can be achieved with smaller size microfiber coupler tips.
