Abstract

The interaction of a large temperature-dependent refractive index and a temperature-dependent absorption of semiconductor materials at 1550 nm can be used to build a very sensitive, film coated fiber-optic temperature probe. We developed a sensor model for the optical fiber-germanium film sensor. A temperature sensitivity of reflectivity change of 0.0012 / ° C , corresponding to 0.1 ° C considering a moderate signal processing system, over 100 ° C within the temperature regime of 20 ° C to 120 ° C , has been demonstrated by experimental tests of the novel sensor. The potential sensitivity and further applications of the sensor are discussed.
