Abstract

We propose a new method for measuring the refractive index of liquids with high precision; the method is based on use of the optical fiber end face. As an example, we investigated the refractive index of sugar solution under varying conditions tens of times. The results show that this method has the advantage of higher stability and repeatability. The concentration and the temperature-dependent refractive index of the sugar solution is also experimentally studied.
