Abstract

This paper describes a method for tuning the resonant wavelengths of slab-coupled optical fiber sensors (SCOSs). This method allows multiple sensors to be interrogated simultaneously with a single tunable laser. The resonances are tuned by rotating a biaxial slab waveguide relative to an optical D-fiber. As the slab waveguide rotates, its effective index of refraction changes causing the coupling wavelengths of the slab waveguide and D-fiber to shift. A SCOS fabricated with potassium titanyl phosphate crystal as the slab waveguide is shown to have resonance tuning ranges of 6.67 and 22.24 nm, respectively, for TM and TE polarized modes.
